You might be surprised to learn that you don't just need to go to the gym or bundle up for a power walk to stay fit. Your daily chores can help burn calories and can add up to a personal fitness routine as well. There is a reason they call it housework. You can burn some serious calories during a marathon cleaning session.
Although spring cleaning is a great way to herald in the new season, traditionally the bulk of the chores fall on mom (or dad). My advice? Spread the chores around by getting the kids involved. Even kids as young as five or six can pitch in so that when the temperatures do finally warm up outside, you won't be tied down and tired from too many chores inside.
Now is the perfect time to effect domestic change, to dust away those wintery cobwebs and embrace a temperate future. If you're apprehensive, worry not; we've compiled, for your mop-manipulating and brush-brandishing consideration, a seasonal countdown that will help scale the most daunting task mountain.
