Most Relaxing Ways to Burn Calories

Looking for a less intense way to burn fat on your rest day? Here are some things that you can do to relax and get healthier at the same time:

Sweat inside a sauna
According to the Mayo Clinic’s health education website, your body composition, sex, and age are determining factors on how many calories you burn during any given day, even when you are resting; this is known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR). A person weighing around 160 lbs. will burn burn about 300 calories during a 30-minute session in the sauna. That number changes based on your individual BMR, in addition to the temperature settings in the sauna and the amount of time you spend in the heat. Source: LiveStrong

Have a full-body massage
File this under our favorite way to burn calories ever. Lying still on a massage table for an hour-long session can burn approximately 67 calories. While this isn’t enough to make you, say, drop a dress size, it sure beats hitting the treadmill. Source: PureWow

Hit the dance floor with your friends
If your friends like to hit happy hour or eat out when they get together, change the plan to burn more calories. Go dancing with your friends to burn extra calories. Thirty minutes of casual dancing burns about 100 calories. But the benefits don’t end there. If choose a dance club instead of eating out, you skip the high-calorie restaurant meal and build a calorie deficit for weight loss even faster. Source: VeryWellFit

Laugh more often
Exercising your funny bone can be an effective way to torch calories. Researchers at Vanderbilt University monitored study participants’ emotional reactions to various video clips, finding that the participants who laughed had a 20 percent increase in calorie-burn, Fox News reports. Ten to 15 minutes of “genuine giggling” could burn off the number of calories found in one medium square of chocolate, or enough calories to lose about four and a half pounds per year, according to the study.
