A new study finds that you should not count housework as exercise. In fact, people tend to overestimate how active they actually are when doing domestic chores like cleaning and gardening, and shouldn’t think they count toward their 150-minute weekly totals of moderate to vigorous exercise. It gets worse: People who count housework in their weekly exercise tally are heavier than people who chose other forms of exercise. It comes down to the fact that your calorie burn doing housework pales in comparison to activities such as cycling or running. Thirty minutes of vacuuming burns 130 calories; 30 minutes of cycling on a stationary bike burns 400 calories.
