Four Easy Ways for Minnesotans to Burn More Calories
Who doesn't love a shortcut? When it comes to weight loss, shortcuts are absolute gold.
Four Easy Ways to Burn More Calories
#1: Sleep More
I'm sold on this without explanation, but I'll provide one anyway: getting enough sleep keeps the stress hormone - cortisol - in check. Cortisol makes us stress-eat, so keeping that jerkface hormone to a minimum will make us less-prone to overeating.
#2: Do a Quick Pre-Meal Meditation Session
What do I look like, Maharishi? This goes back to stress. When you're stressed, your body switches to fight-or-flight mode. When you're in flight-or-fight mode, your body will store more calories, just in case...of things. Some deep-breathing can relax your body into a more calorie-burning state, without having to eat while running on a treadmill.
#3: Don't Forget Your Chores
Doing chores = doing exercise, with double the accomplishment. Vacuuming can burn 100 calories every half an hour, while mowing the lawn (with a push mower) can burn 200 (or more, depending on the terrain of your lawn).
#4: Wander Whenever You Can
Talking on the phone? Do some pacing around; I tend to pace while talking on the phone out of habit. Make your family extra nervous and pace around while watching Wheel of Fortune. Not only will you get some exercise, but you'll also distract them enough to guess the puzzles before they can!
