Keeping Fit This Winter
Published: 22 November 2015
While winter is upon us, that’s no reason to sit inside and hibernate like the bears. There are several ways you can keep fit this season and not have all those fitness milestones you reached last summer go to waste. Here are five ways to avoid that dreaded winter slump:
Change Your Mindset
If you let winter drag you down, it will. However, you can change that. Adjust your attitude and accept that the winter season is here. Seasons come and go every year and before you know it summer will be upon us. If you have a positive attitude, you will be more apt to stay on track. Set a goal for this winter. Doesn’t have to be a big goal, but set a goal and train for it. Whether it is climbing a mountain or running a mile each day, keep your eye on the prize and be committed and disciplined. Then, before you know it, winter will be over.
Add To Your Home Gym
Chances are you will be spending more time inside during the winter months. That’s okay. Reward yourself by adding a piece of equipment to your home gym. Whether it is a new weight bench, barbell, kettlebell, medicine ball or jump rope, this will help keep you invigorated to stay active.
Sure, the temperatures are colder in the winter months. Don’t let that stop you from going outside completely though. Fresh air is good for you. Even if it’s just a walk around the neighborhood, get outside.
Try yoga. Whether you’re an athlete, an elderly person or someone new to exercise, yoga is an excellent form of relaxation for people of all shapes and sizes. It promotes relaxation and increases flexibility. If you’re stressed out, yoga might help solve your problems.
Get Ready for Next Summer
Just because its winter doesn’t mean you can’t start planning for next summer. Want to tone up or pack on some muscle? Don’t let the winter season stop you from working out. Prepare for next summer by training hard every day.
