As you do your household chores, you can do lots to burn calories. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone! Try putting on some dance music- whether its hiphop or salsa you fancy- and just mop away! You are sure to break up a sweat while cleaning the house and moving to the beat. It makes doing chores fun too, because you hardly feel time passing you by with the Backstreet Boys playing in the background.

Fill a couple of used mineral water bottles with water, and use them as makeshift dumbbells. Even as you watch your favorite soap on TV or checking out Hot Deals, you can work out your arms while lifting those dumbbells.

After stepping out of the shower, use your towel as a resistance band. Grasping a towel with your arms behind you, do back stretches to keep you limber.

Now you can give new meaning to the acronym SAHM: Sexy At Home Mom.

First, always do things on time. Sometimes stress comes from having rush things at last minute. It is better to start early and try to finish early, which is a lot less stressful than starting late to finish late. Another thing is avoid confrontation; these can be detrimental to your working career. Also getting on the wrong side of your boss too much times, can put your work in jeopardy and make you worry. One last pointer is to make the best out of everything, try listening to a little music, smile awhile, and talk to co-workers. Don’t make everything just feel like work as if a rope is tied around your neck because of stress. Take note of this tips for the new year.
