The holidays are here and between holiday parties and gift buying it's easy to opt out of your workout.

Here are some easy ways to burn 200 calories. These are fun and allow you to spend some quality time with the family.

All of these activities will burn up to 200 calories:

  • An hour of Pictionary
  • Singing Christmas carols
  • Playing with your niece or nephew
  • Two-hour game of Scrabble
  • Reading for two hours

And here's a bonus one. Laughing and talking for an hour, otherwise known as visiting with friends and relatives can burn 300 calories in an hour. The same as one hour of yoga.
