Don’t let the cold prevent you from staying fit. Exercising in the winter can be difficult when it is cold and dark outside. Cold days and long nights make it harder to get out of bed and to get the body moving. It can be frustrating when it’s dark in the morning and dark when you come home from work. If the weather is good, take a long brisk walk during lunch. This will also provide the added benefit of fresh air and nature. Dancing is a great way to burn calories and have fun with the whole family. Get everyone to work up a sweat by turning on some music and letting loose in your living room, basement or any space that works for you. Here are some other way you can exercise indoors and at home:

  • jump rope
  • stair stepping
  • planks
  • lunges
  • cleaning
  • water bottle weights
  • high knees
  • jumping jacks
  • YouTube workouts

Stay healthy and exercise to help ward off those winter blues!
