There are some easy things you can do to burn more calories throughout the day. No matter if you are a stay at home mom, work from home or in an office, there are ways to increase your calorie burn throughout day to day life.

Dance while getting chores done. Play music in the back ground instead of TV. Listening to music will help you be more productive. It is easy to have the TV on in the background, but it usually means getting distracted. Listening to music also makes you want to move your body. Go with it and dance while you clean the kitchen or do laundry.

Do squats while you cook or stand at your desk. You can do this at the office and at home. Standing has been proven to increase productivity. Add doing squats and you will really get energized.

Lunge as you walk around. This is another exercise you can do daily at home, or in the work place (depending how easily you embarrass). Lunges burn calories and tone your lower body.

Take a brisk walk every day. After lunchtime is ideal. Generally this is the time of day where we feel sluggish. A five to ten minute brisk walk will burn calories, keep your metabolism going and make you more alert. If the weather doesn’t permit a walk, do jumping jacks instead.

Drink eight glasses of water a day. Water keeps your body running smoothly and helps maintain metabolism. The more water you drink, the less calorie packed drinks are consumed. Once you get used to drinking water, nothing else will be able to quench your thirst in the same way.

Drink green tea during the afternoon. It is thought that drinking three cups of green tea a day will help increase loss of belly fat.
