Winter is right on top of us now. While it brings some fantastic wardrobe options with it, it can be a gloomy and inactive season too. With the cold comes laziness and the temptation to stay in bed the whole day. While no one may be stopping you from doing that, it is not ideal.


It may be hard to go out and exercise at first, but winters do have their benefits when it comes to working out. You do not get as sweaty, and as per research, you can work out longer and burn more calories with lesser effort! So try out these activities that will keep you active and fit these winters:

Ice Skating
Most of us have only seen ice skating videos on social media. We imagine being there and experiencing it in person. Why not go and do it this winter? You can get good ice skates here, or you can check your thrift stores if you want to save even more money!

Painting on the Snow
Tired of your kids making a mess on the wall as they have no more activities to do outside? Well, why not let them express their Picasso on the abundant snow outside? You probably have the necessary supplies at home! Just get some food coloring in red, blue, and yellow colors and mix them in water till you have your desired color depth. Give them a brush or spray bottle and let them go wild!

Shovel Snow
You would not believe how good a workout shoveling snow is. You burn around 233 calories every thirty minutes. Even if you do not have much snow on your porch, you can help someone in need. Be an upstanding citizen in your neighborhood and be active too! Not only do you get the benefits of exercise but you will feel good about it too!

Ice Fishing
Do you and your family regularly go fishing in the warmer months? If yes, then you have no reason to stop in the winter either. Check for a popular ice fishing spot around you and have a blast. You can buy a Portable Pop Up Ice Fishing Shelter Tent for the occasion. Make sure you choose still ponds and lakes for fishing. The ice needs to be sufficiently thick or it is dangerous!



No one can deny the fact that sunlight in winters feels fantastic. The warm light improves your mood, and the more active you are, the less prone to diseases too! Tell us about your favorite winter activities to keep yourself up and to run!
