Winter has definitely arrived in Pennsylvania this week. We went months with only a few signs of winter weather and today we got blasted with 22 inches of snow. No matter what the weather, I am on a mission to stay active in winter.
5 Ways to Stay Active in Winter
I am slowly trying to ease myself back into a routine of eating less and moving more. When it’s cold outside, it may be harder to motivate yourself to get up and move. Walking has been my top activity and just because it’s cold outside, I don’t want to use that as an excuse not to walk. Finding other creative ways to stay active in winter has to be my new priority.
When it comes to winter activity you should start taking clues from kids. When it snows kids cannot wait to head outdoors and have fun. Adults should join in on that fun and make sure to stay active in winter.
Have Fun – Just like kids adults can do a few winter activities that aren’t only fun, but will get your body moving and help burn calories. Sledding, building snowmen or having a snowball battle will give you a an all over workout and you will have fun while doing it. Let your guard down and enjoy the snow!
Try Something New – Hiking in the cold weather and snow can be a fun and active adventure. You could even try snowshoeing as another way to get moving on the snow.
Do Your Chores – Chopping wood, clearing cars and snow shoveling are all necessary evils of winter weather. While your doing chores or cleaning up you are staying active and moving more. Make a game of it, challenge your kids or significant other and see who can make the biggest snow pile in a designated amount of time.
Get a Whole Body Workout – Ice skating or even playing ice hockey can give you a whole body workout and help improve your balance, too. Invite your family and friends to join you and stay active in winter on a regular basis.
Don’t Give Up Walking – Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your walking has to end. Visit the local mall, use a treadmill or an indoor walking track to make sure you are getting all of your steps in and remaining active in winter weather.
It just isn’t the cold weather that hinders me from being able to stay active in winter. Unfortunately, I also suffer from occasional joint flareups. There are days that my knees, shoulders and hips are stiff and sore. That discomfort can stop me from wanting to get up and move more. I am looking for a supplement that supports overall joint health and helps with occasional joint flare ups. It’s easier to be active when your joints feel comfortable.
Next week is going to be exciting as I’m getting ready for #Madetomove in 7 Days with Osteo Bi-Flex® EASE. Each Osteo Bi-Flex® product contains Joint-Shield™ 5-Loxin® Advanced, a proprietary blend that helps support joint function.*
I am tired of my joint health slowing me down and Osteo Bi-Flex® helps nurture and support your joints, so you can keep doing what you love!*
You were #madetomove. So, let’s move. Is joint health a concern for you? What are you doing to stay active in winter?
