Cold Weather Exercise
As the temperature outside decreases, your physical activity doesn’t have to follow suit! Movement plays a key role in keeping your body strong and your mind balanced. We’re sharing a few tips to keep you, your family and friends moving—inside and outside—during the cooler months of the year.
Schedule Indoor Activities
Outdoor games can be brought into the house! Start a game of hide-and-seek, freeze tag or capture the flag. Think of ways to weave fun into your routine. Whether it’s in between subjects or during an extended lunch break, kids (and kids-at-heart) need at least an hour of activity every day to keep them healthy and engaged.

Walk the Walk
Walking is a tried-and-true form of exercise that’s ideal for any age. Grab the family or friends, bundle up and hit the pavement with a fun twist. Try organizing a scavenger hunt using the sights in your neighborhood or have a healthy step competition. If you want to take it to the next level, graduate to a power walk to ramp it up.
Try a Virtual Class
Need a work or study break? Find a video of guided stretches or follow along to a quick set of interval exercises. There are many options for free exercise classes online, but you can also get creative and design your own workout. No matter what, try something new from the comfort of your own home.
Note: Since everyone’s health history and nutritional needs are so different, please make sure that you talk with your doctor and a registered dietitian to get advice about the diet and exercise plan that‘s right for you.
