I used to bend over which not only hurt my back but didn't help me. So one day I just started doing squats each time I took out a handful of clothing from the washer to move to the dryer. It actually makes me take less each time so I can get more squats in
My washer and dryer are in the basement, so when I go down to do or check on laundry, I do about 5 minutes of sweeping, decluttering, etc. Seeing things getting cleaner little by little is motivation to keep it up. My basement is almost clean now, almost painlessly.43
