NEAT vs exercise

Friday, February 15, 2013

Heard this on Spark Coach: daily activity is called NEAT and is not the same as exercise. Here i thought a full day of housecleaning was exercise, but it isn't. At first I was disappointed, but then I realized that even if it is NEAT it burns calories. Just standing instead of sitting burns calories.

Just hearing this has me much more aware of how sedentary I really am during the day. So my goal is to have a full day of NEAT (cleaning house), stand as often as I can, and get some calories burned off!
