Taking a walk outside in the winter – let’s face it – sometimes it’s hard to do. Sure it’s sunny and pretty out there – but it’s so cold! Here are just a couple of reasons why it’s worth it to bundle up and head on out there. We all already know that exercise is good for us. Turns out a walk outside in the winter has extra health benefits. So fill your thermos with InstaBroth and get out there!
- You’ll burn more calories. Yep! Trying to stay warm and trudging through the snowy landscape will rev up your metabolism. According to weightwatchers.com, “Walking may just be the simplest way to stay active — it improves circulation, mobility and balance, helps you lose weight, and even works to prevent osteoporosis. All you have to do is put one foot in front of the other!”
- You’ll boost your immunity. According to alive.com, “Exercise is a proven immune booster: walking for just 20 minutes a day can help strengthen your immune system. And walking briskly for 45 minutes five days a week has been shown to reduce the risk of catching a cold by one-third.”
- You’ll reduce your stress. According to alive.com, “Our brains are hardwired to appreciate nature, and winter scenery is incredible: snow-dusted mountain peaks, clouds misting across the sky … you get the idea. Being in nature can make you calmer and less likely to brood.”
- You’ll feel more peaceful. According to weightwatchers.com “Walking outdoors in winter is extremely invigorating and almost meditative,” says Suzanne Nottingham, an American Council on Exercise spokesperson. “It’s like you’re part of nature, walking in the midst of howling winds, blowing snow and a bright sun. And it’s quiet; not many people are out.”
When you return from the outdoors, make yourself a healthy hot chocolate using Protein Essentials Chocolate or Unflavored Collagen to warm yourself. Or continue to destress after your walk with calming tea infused with a scoop of Protein Essentials Collagen.
