253. Sweeping as a Beautifier

The average woman who does her own
housework gets exercise enough, only it is not under the best conditions,

for the air, as a rule, is not sufficiently fresh. If she wants to be

benefited physically, while putting her house in order, let her make it

like outdoors, with the windows wide open so the fresh air can sweep

through the rooms. If necessary she can wear a jacket while making beds

and sweeping, and by the time her work is done she is bound to be in a

healthy glow. If she does not do housework she must go outdoors, and walk,

and indeed, a little walking is desirable even for the housekeeper.
