Recent studies have found that you burn around 1.42 Calories with every mouse click ( yes, we seriously don’t know how people have so much time as to count the calories burnt by clicking your mouse ).
Whenever we type, click or move the mouse, an action is required which means that at some level, calories are being burnt. However, no matter how often you click that mouse it seems insignificant on te overall effect it will have on your body. It is obvious that no one has lost massive amounts of weight simply by sitting in front of the computer and clicking the mouse, but have you ever wondered how many calories a mouse click actually burns? In a recent study by the name of “Convert Anything to Calories”, published by the PHP Science World, it has been found that the number of calories an average person burns per mouse click is 1.42. This is calculated by measuring the “the total volume of the muscles used to bend the index finger.”
Before you start clicking that mouse button at the speed of knotts, let’s make one thing clear, do not expect to turn from fat to fit just by clicking. It should be noted that the measurement used is calories, instead of kilocalories (also known as kcal) which is typically used when talking about the nutritional benefits or food or activities. What this means is that 1,000 calories equates to 1 kcal, meaning that you’d probably wear out your mouse long before you start to see any effects. In any case we expect that this should be somewhat entertaining trivia for those who want to share it with friends.
