Spending time outdoors is beneficial even when the temperature drops. Don't let Old Man Winter force you to stay indoors. Here are a few reasons why it’s a good idea to get outdoors...even in the cold...
Going outdoors can boost your mood. It gets dark earlier in the winter months so absorb the suns rays when you have the opportunity
Spending time outside can increase concentration and creativity
Runners get a better workout and burn more calories when taking their workouts outdoors in cold weather. Outdoor workouts can be more challenging in the winter months, which will lead to greater physical gains. If you jog, or walk outdoors, you’ll have to use more energy to trudge through the snow and wind. Plus it breaks up the monotony of running on a treadmill at the gym
Going outdoors can boost vitamin D levels. Vitamin D fights infections, including colds and the flu
Spending time outdoors in the winter months can improve sleep. Just think how tired you are after shoveling your property. Just make sure you don’t push yourself too hard
