“Reg­u­lar house­work keeps me fit”

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Life Made Easy Health -

“I usu­ally clean the house twice a week and the bath­rooms, once a week. I make sure I sweep, mop and wipe ev­ery­thing down as hard and fast as I can, since the chores count as my weekly car­dio­vas­cu­lar work­out.

Once a month, I get down on my hands and knees, and clean the floor us­ing a rag in­stead of a mop. This re­ally tones my arms and gets my heart rate up. My over­all health and fit­ness have cer­tainly im­proved since I started mak­ing more ef­fort with the house­work. I used to com­plain that hav­ing kids left me with very lit­tle time to ex­er­cise, but that’s no longer an ex­cuse!” – Daisy Teh, 40, lan­guage con­sul­tant
