10 Minutes a Day to Health and Hygiene

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Any dentist will tell you that it takes five minutes to properly brush your teeth [daddy was a dentist]. So while I brush, I do squats--little bouncy ones. Result: clean teeth [less desire to snack] and five minutes of exercise.

House cleaning counts as exercise. Vacuuming a room takes me about five minutes [moving furniture, putting it back, etc] So, every day I vacuum one room. Result: five more minutes of exercise. At the end of the week, the whole house is vacuumed.

Even if I only brush my teeth once a day and vacuum just one room a day, that's ten minutes of exercise--the minimum. Sneaky, eh?
