We all succumb to the cold with a lack of energy and a desire to just chill out, eat food for fuel and binge watch Netflix. Here are 5 tips you can consider to keep your health in good shape during the winter months.
Tip #1 Yoga or Pilates
Taking a yoga or pilates class, either online or at your local studio. Aim for a daily practice to keep you limber, tone, and zen during the winter months. Facilitating good health and inner peace.
Tip #2 Aerobics
An aerobics workout is a fun activity to keep you in shape, warm and increase your fitness. A recommended time is before your yoga practice, as your muscles will be warm and less prone to injury. Check out some 80’s Aerobics workouts, and get all the retro feels. Remember to have fun!
Tip #3 Go for a Walk
Going for a walk is always a great way to get yourself in motion. It doesn’t matter if it is a slow leisurely walk or a brisk walk, you will get cardio benefits from walking.
Tip #4 Play with your pets and or children
Do you have a cat or dog or a pet that could benefit too from some activity? Grab some string, or a ball etc, and play with your pets. It’s a good time to bond and show your furry family you appreciate their need for fun and exercise too. If you have children, you already know their love for activities. Try playing hide and seek, or other games that require movement and lots of fun.
Tip #5 Plant a Winter Garden
If you like to be active in the garden in the spring and summer then there is no reason why you should stop just because the temperature drops. A great idea to keeping active in winter is to plant a winter garden. There are plenty of things to plant no matter what your location, just do a little research on a winter garden for your region and you will be so busy tending to the gardening, you won’t notice how active you are.
