You can benefit from exercising at any time of the year, even during the winter. Before you brave the cold, take a few extra steps to stay safe:
- Check the weather forecast. If it’s very windy or too cold, exercise indoors.
- Warm up before you exercise outside. Try walking or light arm pumping.
- Wear several layers of loose clothing. If it’s snowy or rainy, wear a waterproof coat or jacket.
