Winter weather often means you’ll be cooped up in the office, home and bar all winter. Being indoors this much can cause the “winter blues” and negatively affect your mood. So whether it’s jogging, skiing, skating, or any other wintertime activity, mix it up at least once a week and get a sweat on outdoors. Not only will the cold chill be invigorating, but also your mood will improve.
If you’re into running, running in the snow burns more calories than dry weather runs, as there’s more resistance. Just make sure you have some great trail running shoes with good traction. When running in the snow, use a shorter stride for better control and start by running slower than your normal, dry weather gait. Stick to flat ground and try to run on fresh powder rather than old, hardened snow pack.
