Do you have a bad case of the "lazyus workoutus"? We totally get you, which is why we've rounded up everyday activities that'll help you burn 200 calories easily. You won't even know you're working out! (via hercampus.com)

  1. Walk for 40 minutes.

Make sure your pace is at three miles per hour.

  1. Bike or rollerblade for about 23 minutes.

Provided that you reach approximately 4.6 miles of pedalling or skating.

  1. Climb the stairs for 20 minutes.  

Taking the stairs instead of the elevator can help burn 10 calories per minute. The longer your stair-time is, the more calories you'll burn.

  1. Dance for 40 minutes.

Hit the dance floor with your barkada or have a spontaneous dance party with your fam at home. Either way, all participants get deducted 200 off their calorie count. 

  1. Sing for 1.5 hours.

A karaoke party of one is a guaranteed fun time and 200 calories off your system.

  1. Do squats for 15 minutes. 

Doing five minutes of squats helps burn 70 calories already. Instead of doing just five, make it 15 minutes to burn a total of 200 calories. You can easily do this while drying or combing your hair.

  1. Stretch for 12 minutes.

Stretching alone can burn 2.7 calories a minute. Do six minutes of stretching in the morning, and another six in the evening for a total of 12 minutes per day, and get 200 calories burned in a week as a result.

  1. Drink eight glasses of ice-cold water.  

When you drink ice-cold water fast (instead of just sipping it), your body will make an effort to keep the water warm, which explains how you burn approximately 25 calories per glass, and 200 calories per eight glasses.

  1. Walk and talk at the same time for an hour. 

Whether you're walking and talking with a friend or walking while talking on the phone, this trick will result to 200 torched calories.

  1. Laugh out loud for 1.5 hours. 

When you laugh for 10 to 15 minutes, you spend your energy burning 10 to 40 calories, which means that an hour's worth of laughing is equal to 200 calories burned.

*The timeframe provided is for people weighing around 150-160 lbs.
