Topic - Can sweeping the floor help you live longer?

If you’re an older gal and are able to spend just 30 minutes a day sweeping the floor or doing the laundry, you might just live longer.  As we age, it’s more and more difficult to move around, why not take care of two things at once? Women who completed just 30 minutes of light housework reduced their risk of death by 12%.  Add an additional 30 minutes of work and your overall risk of dying drops by a whopping 39%! And, you don’t have to do housework. Taking a walk around the neighborhood or even going outside to get the mail counts as light exercise, so get out there and enjoy yourself!  Light exercise for the older population is just as effective as moderate to vigorous exercise in preventing a major disease. By 2050, the amount of seniors will double what it was in 2000. Women will outnumber men 2 to 1. So get out there, girls and keep up the good work!
