Do you have a desk job where you fidget a lot? Well, fidgeting can help you burn tons of calories, so keep on moving! There have been various studies on the benefits of extra little movements, better known as fidgeting, and the habit has become associated with leaner people than others. People who are more overweight do not move as much, including small movements like fidgeting, as those with a slimmer body shape. You’ll be impressed that fidgeting can help you burn an extra 300-350 calories per day.
Of course, this all depends on how frequently and how intensely you fidget throughout the day. Nevertheless, it’s a good thing to keep in the back of your mind. That goes double if you can’t make it to your actual sweat-inducing and calorie-burning workout that day. Through fidgeting, you’ll burn an immense amount of calories without having to do much and, better yet, not break a sweat. Let’s add the number of calories you would burn each year from fidgeting with this amount per day. You would burn 109,500 calories per year just from these small movements. If you aren’t a fidgeter, now may be the time to make this a new habit of yours!
