How To Stay Active in Colder Months

by Jodee on November 2, 2009

Now that the weather is starting to get colder, we look forward to spending time indoors. The upcoming Holiday Season means socializing that will include a number of tasty treats. Making a point of staying active throughout the year will help you to maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of heart disease.

You still have options for getting exercise, even when the mercury is low. Consider all the outdoor activities that are available in your community. If you have a ski resort nearby, sign up for some lessons. Cross-country skiing, skating, snowshoeing and hiking are other good choices.

If you prefer to exercise indoors, you can still do so during the winter months. To stay motivated, join a gym and book a few sessions with a personal trainer or sign up for an exercise class. That way, you can stay active all year round.
