The Calories we burn from our daily activities

In my previous post, I tackle about calorie and its important role in our body and now I am wondering how many calories we burn in our usual daily activities. From the moment we sleep till we wake up and perform our daily task we burn calories. I personally research the amount of calories burned based from a regular activities of a person. The amount of calories burned in the activities depends on the body weight, age and condition of health.

Calories burned from daily life activities:
(This is approximately based from a healthy condition of an average adult with a body weight of 63 kilogram. Yeah it’s me)

  • Sleeping calmly (per hour) – 56 calories – I usually sleep in 6-7 hours per day so that would be 336 or 392 calories burned.
  • Taking a bath in 15 minutes – 20 calories
  • Household walking (per hour) – 120 calories
  • Using  ladder / walking upstairs (10mins) – 82 calories- Since my bedroom is in the second floor, I always use a ladder to go my room.
  • Reading a book, magazine (per hour) – 80 calories –  I usually read the post in my computer.
  • Watching Television (per hour) – 60 calories
  • Typing/ encoding in a computer (per hour) – 93 calories
  • Playing with kids (per hour)– 150 calories - I love playing with kids especially with my toddler and my niece.

I really don’t want to deprive myself from eating the foods I love so whenever I eat a  high caloric foods, I tend to burn my high calorie intake by doing activities like walking or playing with my little Boy then I drink a lot of water.
