SPRING CLEANING BURNS CALORIES
Goodbye winter, spring is officially here--music to the ears of many who endured a harsh winter! And although cold weather may still be lingering where you live, it’s a good time to start planning your spring cleaning. The benefit—besides a cleaner and more organized house, of course—is a calorie burn comparable to walking 3 miles per hour. Even the American Heart Association counts ousecleaning as moderate exercise. But, you need to get in there and really clean—no feather duster allowed. While a bout or two of spring cleaning doesn’t replace structured exercise, it’s a great way to be active.
