If you are looking to stay warm during the cooler winter months but want to keep active, you may need to take some time away from snuggling up with a warm companion and watching Netflix under a blanket. For many of us this seems to be the easiest option but, as we all know, the temptation to munch the winter away with naughty treats will mean that we have more than one winter coat to peel off when summer arrives. Finding ways of staying warm that combine some physical activity will keep you feeling great, in your body, mind and soul.
Believe it or not, but by the time you get back from your morning walk through the brisk winter air, you are going to feel a billion times better than you did when you were hunkered down under your quilt trying to talk yourself out of going. Not only does it get oxygen flowing through your body, but also it keeps you warm, and increases your metabolism to assist your body to burn up the hearty winter food that is a staple during the season.
Playing a Team Sports
For some of us, the motivation to get out there and actually take that morning walk eludes us, so playing a team sport is another way of getting motivated to increase your heart rate during the colder months. The knowledge that your team is waiting for you to join them for training and games will get you off the couch and out into the cool air to get some of that much-needed oxygen into your system. Salisbury Super Sports offers a variety of different sports so you are bound to find one that inspires you to make the move.
Another great way to get your body moving and keep those winter blues at bay is dancing. Joining a local dance group, or simply putting on your favourite tunes and dancing around in your lounge will be sure to have you peeling off the layers in no time at all.
In case you haven’t noticed, there has been a rise in the number of group drumming and djembe classes during recent times, which brings forth a new age of physical exertion that not only feels great but also keeps you fit. Joining a local drumming group will not only improve your rhythm, as well as your mood, but it is also a great way to keep fit and make new friends.
