As the colder months aproach we thought it would be a good time to talk about motivation and staying active and healthy through the colder months. For many, children included these colder months can provide a 'rationalisation' for reducing exercise and decreasing healthy eating in exchange for junk food and the couch. However, as many of you do know, this is in fact the time to try and really remain fit, healthy and active.
There are a number of reasons for this.
Strenghen Immune system. By maintaining regular exercise and health we strengthen our immune system and this will help to ward off colds and ailments.
Strengthen the regualr release of endorphins. Colder weather can often create feelings of energy lows and depression to a greater extent than when the sun is out and shinning.
Build up skills for summer. During the colder months its a great time to train, prepare and get ready for the return of warmer weather. Get out there and get the edge!
Enjoyment! Dont let the weather stop you from doing things you love. Throw on some warmer clothes and get out there and active with friends and family.
See you out there guys!
