Everyday Exercise


Exercise is always so much easier to accomplish when it is part of your everyday life.  And I found a list of common everyday activities with the equivalent calorie burning potential.  Some of them are quite impressive.

Below is a list of calories burned for doing just ten minutes of each activity.

  • Walking downstairs  78-111
  • Walking upstairs  202-288
  • Preparing a meal  46-65
  • Shoveling snow  89-130
  • Repairing a car  43-59
  • Playing the piano  32-47
  • Caring for babies or toddlers  41-63
  • Gardening  42-59

Isn’t it encouraging to know that people can get quite a lot of exercise just by doing a bunch of chores around the house?
