Non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) is the energy expended for everything we do that is NOT sleeping, eating or sports-like exercise. It is, daily ACTIVITIES that expends energy such as, walking to work, fidgeting, and undertaking house hold activities like this💆♀️😆😉
Trust me when I tell you, once you figure out the little extra neat things you enjoy doing...(yes I find house work stress-relieving and necessary ;) your step count goals will be met pretty easily and also with a smile on your dial as your mood gets that natural boost ✅ feeling good about what you do, and how you do it is also just as important as getting your daily exercise in, sleeping well and eating healthy.
My top picks for daily NEAT - walking or running to work - Walking coffee dates! If you ask me the answer will always be yes 🤣🤣🤣🙌☕️👌
- Playing with my kid (he will always out sprint me) - Sweeping and mopping (so much self satisfaction getting a job done, anything except doing the dishes @trainwithjamiek !) - Baking and boogieing to music at the same time 💃💃
Have a think about what you love, it’s the small changes that add up over time. 🔥🔥
Whether you want to lose weight or improve health here’s one simple tip. Increase your daily NEAT.
