Housework could help us all clean up in fitness stakes
Who knew that hated household chores like cleaning the windows or vacuuming could be the key to a fitter, healthier life? Former Vogue model Patience Bradley believes housework gives a workout equal to going to the gym and, given her trim figure, who are we to argue.
The secret, according to her, is to put a little extra effort into these everyday activities and the benefits will be there for all to see. There will be some cynical women who say they already do enough housework to keep them fit and that their portly male counterparts should try this domestic workout as an alternative to pressing the remote control.
