Playing Drs. Rx: Can Tidying Up Your House Help You Live Longer?

Coronavirus might have you on lockdown, but did you know that you can cut your risk of an early death without leaving your house? And it's as simple as tidying up!

According to a new study out of Norway, during chores around the house may actually prevent an early death. Researchers examined 8 studies following close to 40,000 adults over 6 years and they found that those that did light to moderate physical activities throughout the day lowered their risk of dying. Activities like cooking, washing dishes, vacuuming, and mopping all counted towards their activity. The study concluded that just 24 minutes of moderate activity might be all you need per day to see the benefits.

OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry shares that every little bit counts and Dr. Travis Stork admits that he does not belong to a gym – his house is his gym.
