With winter approaching, there may be many upcoming cold days that simply make us want to stay inside and keep warm. All those days spent indoors can sometimes be accompanied by the winter blues. Fortunately, there are a lot of things we can do to liven things up and stay active in the winter even if it is a bit chilly outside.

Yoga or Pilates: Taking a yoga or pilates class online or in-person will help you connect with others, keep you moving and even tone up your muscles! This is great way to stay active and in shape over the winter.

Start or Join Book Club: Are you an avid reader? Do you want to read more? A book club is a great way to socialize and become exposed to new books and genres. Start one of your own with a group of friends who like to read; that way, you can decide when and where to meet and what to read.

Go for a Walk: Going for a walk is always a great way to get yourself in motion. It doesn’t matter if it is a slow leisurely walk or a brisk one; you will get physical benefits from walking and being active.

Weekly Meeting with Friends: Scheduling a weekly meeting with friends is a great way to stay active in winter and have a lot of fun as well. You should find yourself looking forward to each meeting with your friends.

Play a Game: Organize a game of balloon volleyball, noodle ball, or hallway bowling with a handful or friends. Play an interactive video game on a Nintendo Wii or Switch. Immerse yourself in an afternoon or virtual fishing, tennis, darts, or bowling with friends or family every week and stay moving.
