‘NEAT’ MOVE­MENT

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR BODY -

That’s ‘non-ex­er­cise ac­tiv­ity ther­mo­ge­n­e­sis’: the kilo­joules ex­pended by fid­get­ing dur­ing a meet­ing or run­ning to the wa­ter cooler. In one study, those who did lots of NEAT move­ment burnt as much as 8 370kJ more a day! So stroll when you’re on the phone; hit a mu­seum rather than a movie; go to the shops in­stead of or­der­ing on­line.
