Winter can be a time in which it is hard to motivate yourself to get outside and enjoy being active.
As the weather gets colder, it can seem less appealing to go for your regular run or bike ride through the neighbourhood. However, winters are long here in Canada so it is important that we refrain from being sedentary throughout the day and find ways to embrace Mother Nature. It’s easy to complain about the weather in the winter season but the cold doesn’t have to be a bad thing. With proper preparation and the right mindset, winter is just as good a time as any to stay active.
Shovelling snow doesn’t have to be a hassle or a chore. Snow shovelling is actually a fantastic way to promote healthy movement among your joints and muscles when done correctly. It can get your heart rate up, improving your circulation- and like any other exercise involving resistance, snow shovelling will release endorphins and boost your mood. Turns out this commonly dreaded chore actually has more benefits than you thought!
