​Keep Moving in Winter

Like bears, humans tend to hibernate during the winter months.Nights are longer, days are shorter and the cold air outside feels less welcoming to the human body.

Think of winter as a physical challenge. Turn the laziness into some fun, reachable goals that will improve your health and vitality.Think of exercise as getting ready for your beach vacation or hiking the Hill Country. It helps to visualize the big goal.

The easiest way to get moving is to join a local recreation center.There will be a monthly cost, but it is rarely unaffordable.There is normally a good assortment of spin cycles, exercise equipment, a track, basketball courts, and often, a pool. Choose what you like to do and go find an exercise partner who will help keep you going toward your goal.
