31 Oct Why working out during winter is good for you!
Are you a dog, horse, seal or bird? Unless you are one of these animals, you don’t want a winter coat. But unfortunately, there is a real possibility that you will develop one during winter. When the days are cold and dark it doesn’t seem the best period to work out. But that is all but true! Winter is the perfect season to work out!
A seal develops a fat layer of no less than five centimeters in the winter. That’s perfect to survive in the ice-cold water. Fortunately for a seal, as soon as spring starts the winter fur automatically disappears. Unfortunately, that does not apply to people. That’s a pity. Because on a cold winter’s evening, you will feel the temptation to crawl under a blanket on the couch and eat a bag of chips. Well, in that case you will gain weight quickly.
Work out together On a cold winter day, it can be difficult to be active. Most people want to take it easy during winter. True, winter is the time to have fun together. To enjoy life. It’s the time of year we celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve. So, you can say during winter we love to meet other people. But let’s be honest: you can also do that in a gym! Working out with others is so much fun! And also, it is very healthy! With regular exercise, your body stays in good shape and you’ll feel more energized. A healthy body prevents all kinds of disorders and diseases too.
During winter the days are short and dark. There are a lot of people who are struggling with winter depression during this period: they don’t feel like doing anything and their mood is horrible. Working out helps you to feel better, as your body produces endorphins. This is a substance that makes you feel good. Depressions and your bad mood will eventually disappear.
