Hiring us for Sarasota house cleaning may give you a flatter stomach along with a cleaner house. A recent study found that people who list housework as part of their weekly exercise tend to be heavier than those who rely on other forms of activity.
The study done by the University of Ulster found that 43% of adults claimed
they were meeting the national guidelines for 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a week, but two-thirds were including housework in the total. The problem was worst among women and seniors. Excluding household chores, only 20% of women met the recommendations.
You’ve probably heard advice about blending physical exercise into your regular daily routine by vacuuming the stairs or parking further away from the mall so you have to walk the remaining distance. While these efforts are better than nothing, you’ll get better results spending your time on more vigorous stuff.
If you are serious about losing weight, a professional cleaning service can take over your vacuuming and dusting. That way you can free up your time for something more effective like taking a run or signing up for CrossFit or Zumba classes.
Cleaning is good for your house, but not so useful for taking off pounds. Plus, while you can always find ways to make your workouts more challenging, housework is going to get less demanding the more practice you get because your body gets used to it and you move more efficiently. Go have fun at the gym and make new friends instead of trying to raise your heart rate by mopping the bathroom floor alone.
