Although NEAT may not get the job done as quickly, it gets it done just the same. It works on the fact that calories are consumed in moving even the smallest muscle in your body. When all these little muscle movements add up, they amount to more calories than what you lose with all your infrequent trips to the gym.
Here are some things that you should try-
New Flights, New Heights
Climbing is a great way to trim the fat. If it seems too daunting at first, take the steps halfway and elevator for the rest. Step up your stair game as time progresses.
Don't Wait in Vain
Turn your waiting time from an unfortunate reality of life into a NEAT opportunity. Stand on one leg or step from side to side. If you're taking a train or a bus, offer your seat to grateful others and prefer to stand instead.
Carry Your Weight
The next time you hit the supermarket try carrying your groceries back home. If you have to take the car, turn unloading the car into an at-home exercise. Nothing gets your blood pumping like lifting a heavy bag!
Drop the Bass
Cleaning at home is the one thing we all might hate, but it's NEAT at its finest. Turn up the tunes, sweep the floors, and torch those calories!
Burn it off
Rotate your heels while seated at regular intervals to exercise your leg muscles. Place a large book on your knees to provide more resistance and higher caloric expenditure.
Every little bit will help you achieve your fitness goals. Above all turn the everyday mundane into NEAT fitness opportunities. It's time to burn those calories and have some fun while you are at it!
