TIPS FOR STAYING HEALTHY, ACTIVE AND MOTIVATED DURING WINTER
With Winter well and truly upon us it’s easy to consider hibernation until the weather warms and Spring is upon us. But just because the temperature has dropped it doesn’t mean regular exercise has to with it. Sure it can be a little more challenging but at Urban Workout we have come up with a few ways to keep you motivated, exercising and feeling great through these colder months.
During Winter it’s very easy to find reasons not to exercise. However we all know how much better we feel after exercising. So focus on a reason to exercise, rather than the excuse not to. Get started and before you know it the session will be done and you will be feeling much better and warmer for it.
Train with friends or family
Once again it’s easy to make the decision not to exercise when it’s cold and it’s the last thing you feel like doing. If the time is booked in with a friend or family member then you can hold each other accountable and make sure it gets done.
Book an active midwinter escape
Whilst not everyone will be able to head to the sun in Europe, 3 or 4 days away in some sun with lots of activities is a great way to recharge the batteries whilst working your way through a cold winter. Get it booked!!!
Exercise straight after work without going home
It’s hard to come home into the warmth and then turn around and head outside into the elements to exercise. So don’t go home in between. Pack your exercise gear and get it done before or after work.
Dress appropriately, rug up and embrace the cold
Winter doesn’t have to mean solitary confinement in your lounge room. Get some warm clothes and head out and embrace it. It might be the snow you enjoy, going for a hike or a bike ride. Make sure you take a safety first approach with the weather of course.
Keep moving to stay healthy and boost immunity
Exercising regularly and eating well over the winter is a great way to boost immunity. So keep in mind that whilst your exercising you’re actually doing yourself a favour and reducing your chances of getting sick.
