Housework Might Improve Your Health in Old Age

In the News

A study is suggesting doing housework as you get older could sustain your health, mentally and physically

If so then someone with OCD for example could consider it as not an illness but something to maintain their health and good being

This could be what's needed instead of those expensive visits to the gym and keep the house clean at the same time

It is obvious for example that you burn a lot of calories while doing housework, which in return is keeping you fit

But its the mental side of the study that i find interesting , it could explain why athletes feel euphoria when excercising , maybe this is linked to the OCD and the sufferers also feel euphoria and satisfaction constantly cleaning, which would go a fair way to explaining the compulsion

This is just my own theory, it is not mentioned in the study
