While you’re dusting, strap on weights

While you’re dusting, strap on weights

A great way to get arms burning while dusting is to wear some ankle weights around your wrists.

Since dusting requires a lot of arm movement, even if you add just two to three pounds of extra resistance, you can get those arms burning with every swipe.

While you’re folding laundry, do squats

  • Place your basket of clean clothes on the floor, and instead of bending over to pick up the items to fold, squat down instead.
  • Stand with feet hip-width apart and bend the knees until your butt is level with them (but don’t let your knees go past your toes; stay slightly higher if you don’t have the range of motion to go low while maintaining your form).
  • And be sure to engage your core as you come back up to stand.

While you’re paying bills, do abdominal twists

While you’re paying bills, do abdominal twists

  • Stand between two tables such that you can take a bill from the right and then twist to the left to pay it.
  • If the table is high, you will also work your shoulders.
  • Keep your hips forward and backside tucked under to protect your back, and engage your abs on every twist (pretend someone is about to punch you in the stomach).

While taking out the trash, do bicep curls

  • When you’re carrying those heavy bags from the house to the cans, curl your arms 15 times per trip.
  • Hold the bags and keep your elbows close to your ribcage, advises Glor.
  • Lift and lower by extending the arms all the way down toward your hips and then bringing them up toward your shoulders.

While doing dishes, do calf raises

While doing dishes, do calf raises

  • Do at least 20 calf raises, where you stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and raise up onto the balls of your feet, then lower back down to the floor.
  • After 20, take the towel and start drying while you squat—pretend you’re sitting in an imaginary chair, or put a real one behind you and touch your butt to it; then stand back up.
  • After 20 reps, go back to washing with calf raises until the dishes are done.

Your leg muscles—calves, glutes, and quads—will start to tone after about a week.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
