Ways to get exercise with zero effort

Ways to get exercise with zero effort Health & Fitness

Plant trees

You can sign up at your local nature conservatory and volunteer to plant trees. If that’s too difficult to find, garden in your very own backyard. Not only are you doing something worthwhile for the environment, but also burning some serious calories without realising it, a roughly estimated 400 calories per hour, that is!


Jog with your dog

If you have a furry friend at home, take him along with you on your next run. Running in the park and getting some interaction with your pet makes any exercise all the more fun. If you don’t have pets, you can spend time at a local dog park or an animal shelter and play with them. Not only are you getting some physical activity in, but spending time with these cuties will be sure to have you smiling all day.



Get in a fun and challenging workout by geocaching. This outdoor recreational activity uses a receiver or a mobile device to detect caches or containers hidden away at specific locations. Sort of like a treasure hunt, geocaching will have you huffing and puffing in no time!


Play an instrument

Believe it or not, playing a musical instrument will have you burning off calories of your brain. Whether it’s the guitar or the flute, reading music keeps the brain stimulated, improves hand-eye coordination, and generally has you feeling good. Wind instruments especially also strengthen your respiratory system.


Help a friend move

Be a good friend by helping your friend in a move. You’re bound to go through a whole lot of physical activity packing and shuffling boxes around, physically transporting your belongings, rushing up and down stairs, while working out your muscles and getting in some serious cardio. You’ll definitely break into a sweat.


Clean up

Sweeping, dusting, mopping, and scrubbing are excellent calorie burners. All the more reason then for you to keep your home clean, at least once a week!
