Stay active in the colder months

Try out new styles of being active, how to get outside more and how to stay warm!

As the colder months approach, it can become increasingly difficult to stay active. The shorter days and chilly temperatures make it tempting to stay inside and cozy up with a good book or movie. However, staying active during the colder months is important for both physical and mental health. Here are some tips to help you stay active during the colder months.

Firstly, consider indoor activities such as joining a gym, taking a fitness class, or practicing yoga. These activities can not only keep you active but can also help you meet new people and socialize. Additionally, they provide a warm and safe environment to exercise in. If you are uncomfortable joining a gym, Dimensions PT can help ease you into exercise with a one-on-one training plan. If you are interested in joining a group fitness program but don’t know where to go, reach out to Dimensions PT for many suggestions!

Secondly, embrace outdoor activities that are specific to the fall and winter seasons such as hiking, raking leaves, skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, or even building a leaf pile/snowman with your family. These activities not only provide a great workout but also allow you to enjoy the beauty of fall and winter. You can always treat yourself to a warm beverage afterwards to warm up your hands, feet, mouth and soul! These are also moments that provide fabulous memories with family.

Remember to make sure you warm up before doing these activities with some dynamic stretching inside first! Wear layers but not too many to the point of you starting to sweat and then ultimately make yourself colder!

Lastly, don’t forget to dress appropriately for the weather. This means wearing layers, a hat, gloves, and proper footwear to keep you warm and comfortable. With the right gear, you can still enjoy a good outdoor workout even in the coldest temperatures.

In conclusion, staying active during the colder months is important for both physical and mental health. By incorporating indoor activities, embracing winter sports, and dressing appropriately, you can maintain an active lifestyle all year round. Summer may be the season to get out, go for a run, meet up with friends for a workout class and wear shorts; but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue that into winter!
