Do not like the majority of people washing dishes, because no one is too nice touching wet food or removing grease from dirty dishes. But this task could bring unexpected benefits for your health.
A study conducted by the University of California among 6 thousand volunteers aged 65 to 99 years, found that those who washed dishes had a long-lived and more active life as opposed to those who weren’t doing household tasks.
The research was conducted for 3 years followed with sensors measuring daily activity which had during each week.
The important thing is not live a century, but the quality of that life: perhaps you’ll be able to engage in activities that you enjoy and take ideas that motivate you. If you have a more active life, when you’re more you have more elasticity and better mobility than those who were sedentary youth.
It can be easy to take shelter in the routine and spend many years without moving too, but even if you don’t have time to do exercise at least the home care work serve to have some physical activity.
