Housework helps make adults fitter

According to this article, doing housework is good for your physical and mental health.
Doing the dishes, making the beds, hoovering the home and other household chores all has beneficial effects.
It is better for you than where you live or even your income.
The physical exertion should be part of your fitness routine and you keep your home clean and tidy too!

Although any physical exertion I would say is good for you this report conflicts with another article in the same newspaper just two years ago :lol:

But any sort of movement is good for your body so its all got to be good for you. It stands to reason.

Housework will be good for you as long as you don't exert yourself.
