Hibernation is not Healthy

Staying active is important to your overall health, but it can be more difficult to do during the chilly winter months. Many find it easier to avoid the cold weather altogether by staying indoors, but this can have unfavorable effects on the body. Winter inactivity can cause weight gain, especially considering the extra calories consumed eating and drinking over the holidays. The trick to staying active is finding an outdoor activity that you truly enjoy, such as taking the kids sledding, going snowshoeing, or going cross-country skiing. Indoor options are also great, like taking a fitness class, walking at the mall, or trying a dance class. No matter what you do, making a commitment to staying active should keep you healthy throughout the winter months.
