Blog: Don't Hibernate, Activate

Move MORE now that winter is here.

Fall is almost over and winter is near. Have you started your quest to be a healthier person? Often it is harder in the winter months to exercise and eat right. Colder weather triggers an instinct to conserve energy by eating more and moving less. This was a good thing when food was scarcer in the wintertime and activity used up precious energy needed to keep warm.

However, this hibernating impulse no longer applies as we have plenty of food and heat. Consequently we tend to gain weight. Add in the holidays, which all seem to center around feasts of drinking and eating, and if you are like the
average American you may gain as much as 10 pounds from October to January.

Don’t be one of them!

Pick one small thing to do to start on your healthy winter program. Walk a little more, drink more water, eat a little less, get a good night’s sleep, meditate…just do one thing and start it today.

Be healthy, be happy, be active!
