Hygge Design

Outdoor cooking: the new trend to spend as much time as possible outdoors with loved ones.

One of the things we need most in this period of continuous lockdown is to spend time outdoors with the people we love most, family and friends. The new trend in the design sector is to design houses with a large terrace or garden that can include a kitchen for outdoor cooking and eating.

Housework can count as an exercise (well I already knew that), and some tasks can actually help to improve your strength and flexibility.

Apparently ironing isn’t at the top of the list for exercise but you can burn around 55 calories and it can make a significant difference to your core strength.

Vacuuming, however, can boost your core strength and can give your heart a good workout AND you could burn up around 100 calories each time.

Dusting and polishing will burn around 90 calories and helps increase flexibility as you reach up to corners and around furniture.

Changing the bed is also a good cardio workout and can burn up around 70 calories.

Mopping the floor is another good cardio workout for your heart and can burn around 100 calories.

Decluttering and cleaning promotes a positive mental attitude and can have an energising effect, allowing you to focus on other challenges in your life.

You can approach cleaning as a meditative task or throw yourself into it, all elbow grease and dancing with mops.

If your going to do your Spring cleaning properly this year then why not ditch the plastic and buy more echo friendly cleaning products like these listed below.
