Get involved in a fun sport

First off, if you’re looking to lose weight without exercising, Liu suggests playing a sport. Bring a fun activity back into your life like tennis or bowling, or try something totally new! Pickleball, for example, has been gaining so much popularity recently—and for good reason. The sport is a mashup of badminton, wiffle ball, and ping-pong, and it’s such a fun way to get social. Research shows this moderately intense form of exercise can decrease depression, boost cardiovascular fitness, and improve blood pressure. It’s also a solid calorie-burner—you can apparently torch between 8 to 11 calories each minute, depending on how intense the game gets (via Pickleball Guide).

Opt for the stairs over the elevator

There are also a few sneaky ways to get in extra steps during the day without feeling as though you are actually “exercising.” For one thing, try taking the stairs instead of an elevator whenever possible. If you’re rolling your eyes thinking why even bother, you’ll be surprised to learn that each time you opt for the staircase instead of the elevator, you burn calories and show your heart health some love. According to Livestrong, a person who weighs 160 pounds and walks up the stairs can burn 29 calories in just 3 minutes. If they choose the stairs four times a day, they’ll burn around 116 calories.

Plan long walks with friends

Another super easy thing to do is plan long walks with friends. Walks don’t really feel like your typical exercise, because you can talk, enjoy your favorite caffeinated beverage, and catch up on so many things. The time will pass quickly, and you’ll be so glad you made the plan. By the time you’re done? Well, according to New Health Advisor, if you weigh 150 pounds and do a walk and talk with friends for 30 minutes at 2.0 mph, you can burn around 90 calories. A 200-pound individual can torch 120 calories walking at 2.0 mph for 30 minutes, while a 250-pound person can burn 150 calories. Keep in mind that the faster you walk, the more calories you burn.

Don’t stop at just walking with friends, either. Liu also recommends that you “have a daily step goal to hit.” It’s easy to take the long route in your house and also park further away in a parking lot.

Take advantage of house cleaning and chores

We’re not done yet! Doing chores around your house and simple cleaning is a perfect way to torch those calories away. Not only will your house sparkle, but you’ll be surprised to know that by vacuuming the house for a half-hour, you can burn around 124 calories if you weigh 150 pounds (and about 166 calories if you weigh 200 pounds), according to WebMD. And don’t stop there—pull out the mower, and cut the grass. A person who weighs 185 pounds can burn around 200 calories just by mowing the lawn for a half-hour. Get the picture?
