When I am cleaning around the house, I would make others wonder what is wrong with me. I bend over from the waist like touching my toes to pick up anything off the floor or really low. I reach over my head and bend sideways with the duster to stretch and bend. I make every move exercise
When picking something up from the floor, try doing a lunge instead of bending over. Make sure to do another one on the opposite side. Do lunges when dusting rather the bending over. As you are washing dishes., raise your heels off the floor one at a time; like you are walking in place. You can even do this when you are sitting down.
Every year my husband and I set a goal as to how much loose change we think we'll be able to find and pick up. All those pennies, dimes and nickels that people just throw away add up when you bend down to pick them up (we collect about $20 each year!) Not too proud to turn away free money :)
