Vacuum and washing the floor

Vacuum, scrubbing and washing the floor can be a great workout for people who want to do some cardio exercises. If you do these cleaning tasks for at least thirty minutes you can burn between 99 and 166 calories. But you have to keep in mind that the number of calories varies and depends on your body conformation, such as weight and resistance to effort and the intensity of training. 

In fact, one of the most important things that you have to take into consideration when you are self isolated is to avoid being sedentary and make sure that you live in a clean space. Now you can combine these main goals if you want to stay healthy and safe these days. So, put on your favorite music and start cleaning your floor for at least thirty minutes. Trust me, you will feel way better!

In addition, vacuuming is the same as doing ten minutes on the cross trainer and the best part is that you do not need to go to the gym and you will have more time for “me time”. 

Many studies have found that regular and moderate aerobic exercises improve your cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, reduce asthma symptoms and strengthen your immune system.
