If you’re running a busy household you will know that a daily gym session can often drop to the bottom of the priority list.
From the continual growing ironing pile all the way to the never emptying washing basket – household chores can often take over your daily schedule.
However, it’s not all bad news for those looking to lose a few pounds as it turns out household chores can burn a staggering 20,000 calories a month (that’s the same as 16,816 burpees).
Not convinced? A new report by Wren Kitchens reveals how many calories you’ll burn doing daily activities. The more chores you do, the more you may notice the pounds melt away.
Please note: the calorie counts are based on the average weight of a person being 156 pounds. If you weigh more, you’ll burn more. If you weigh less, you’ll burn less.
