Day 4 – N.E.A.T

Let’s move today! N.E.A.T stands for non exercise activity thermogenesis. It’s all the things that you do to burn calories during your day that are NOT formal exercise. Washing the dishes, walking to the car, folding clothes, cleaning your house. All these things are forms of N.E.A.T. Making a point to increase your daily N.E.A.T is a super easy way to burn more calories throughout your day which in turn can help you reach your weight loss goal faster! Plus, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but sitting is the new smoking. We need to be as active as we possibly can throughout the day just to maintain our overall health!

Here are some ways to increase your daily N.E.A.T!

  • Park far away from the grocery store, mall, etc.
  • Deep clean your house
  • Place your laptop or computer on a high counter so that you are standing while on it.
  • Stand up while folding clothes
  • ย When sitting for desk work or school work, get up every thirty minutes and walk around or do some squats.
  • Yard work (Bleh!)
  • Be active with your kids
  • Wash your car

Questions:

What are the ways you can increase your N.E.A.T today?

How did yesterday go? What came easy to you? What didn’t?

If you didn’t get to do something that you had on your list, that’s perfect! We will be zeroing in on those in the near future. ๐Ÿ™‚

This has been so fun everyone! Thank you so much for participating and sharing! Tis the season to be fit.
