Winter Warm-Up

It’s too cold. I’ll get sick. I might slip and fall.” All common excuses for avoiding exercise when the seasons change. With four to six months of winter in many parts of the country, you can’t afford to skip winter exercise altogether. For both physical and mental well-being, the human body needs activity all year round. Whether you find creative ways to exercise indoors or dive into the great outdoors, maintaining an exercise regimen through the holidays and beyond will not only keep you fit, but also give you a head start come spring.
 
TAKE IT OUTSIDE
If you don’t want to stay cooped up inside for months, exercising outdoors can be a great way to stay in shape while appreciating the sights and sounds of winter. From snowball fights and sledding to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, a host of outdoor activities awaits you. Of course, if you have any medical conditions or concerns about outdoor exercise, check with your doctor first. Here are a few tips to help make the most of your time outdoors:
  • Dress for the Cold.
  • Protect Your Skin.
  • Drink Fluids.
  • Beware of Wind Chill.
  • Don’t Push Your Luck.
STAY INDOORS
Despite all the excuses for not wanting to face the elements, there are times when it is wise to avoid outdoor activities. If you are too cozy in front of the fireplace to brave the outdoors, try one of these indoor workout options.
  • Walk the Mall.
  • Hit the Gym.
  • Take a Dip.
  • No Need to Leave Home.
Winter can be one of the most exhilarating times of the year. With the sun and snow and a variety of winter sports to choose from, there’s no reason to hibernate indoors. It may be chilly and downright freezing at times, but your body still craves at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. Stay indoors if you have to, but if the conditions are decent and you dress appropriately, you still can walk, run, hike and play sports outside. Once you get going, you won’t even notice the cold.
