It’s cold outside and I’m sure the last thing you want to do is leave the warmth and comfort of your home to go workout. Although it is cold, getting moving is not only good for your body; it is good for your mood. Staying active decreases stress, increases energy, reduces the winter blues, and can help you sleep at night, as well as provide many other health benefits. So, the next time you come up with excuses for why you want to abandon getting moving, here are some easy things you can do to decide instead to stay active. All it takes is a little “thinking outside of the box” and being creative.
