According to the US Department of Agricultural, or USDA, the National Agricultural Library claims a person needs to burn over 3,500 calories more than they eat to lose a pound. Moreover, they would have to reduce up to 500 calories per day to lose a pound per week or double that to lose two pounds per week. This can happen by eating fewer calories, burning more calories — or both. However, working out isn’t always easy. Sweating can be smelly, sticky, and super nasty sometimes. However, it’s necessary, especially when you are working out. However, wouldn’t it be great if you could exercise without sweating so much — or at all? Whether you are busy at your job or just feeling lazy, you should try these no-sweat exercises. Go from working on the job to working out at the same time. You’ll feel productive burning calories while sitting on your butt.
40. Breathe Deeply
Taking deep breaths can help you lose calories without sweating. How? When you breathe deeply, it engages your abdominal muscles. You’ll breathe from your diaphragm instead of your chest. Try to get into this habit of breathing slower. This promotes fat loss because you curb the fat-storing stress hormone, cortisol.
Breathing deeper gives you more momentum to complete your tasks, burning calories in other no-sweat ways throughout the day. Do you know about the 4-7-8 breathing exercise? You can slowly inhale through your nose for four seconds. Pause your breath when you get to the top of seven seconds. Open your mouth slightly and exhale for eight seconds. This pattern also helps with stress.
