The coming of winter means more dark hours in your day. You might even start your day by heading to work in the dark, and returning home when it’s dark outside. This means that many of your non-work hours are spent in the dark. Not a great thing when you want to exercise regularly. You might not feel motivated to work out at all when it always feels cold and dark. If this is something you’re dreading this coming winter, it’s time to think about some solutions so you can keep your workout regime.
There are not a lot of sunny hours in the winter time. Make sure you’re using them to their fullest. Go for a walk or hike on the weekend. Get outside for a quick run during your lunch hour. Just knowing that there’s not a lot of sunny time can help motivate you to get outside for workout when the sun is shining.
Just because it’s cold and dark doesn’t mean you have to stop exercising. Being aware of the challenges and having some solutions will keep you in your healthy habits all year long.
