Latest news, updates & reminders

  • Staying Active This Winter!

We all know how easy it is to stay indoors during the winter months but there are health benefits to getting outside! Such as; the cold weather can increase your resting metabolism, it can help cure the winter blues, help your body produce vitamin D, & cause your body to burn fat.  Just remember to STAY SAFE and dress appropriately for the weather. When it’s TOO cold-don’t risk it, stay inside!

Here are 18 fun outdoor activities to try this winter!

  • Go ice skating.
  • Build a winter bonfire and make s’mores.
  • Rent some snowshoes and go snowshoeing.
  • If you have the equipment, go winter camping. If that’s too ambitious, check out your state parks for cabin or yurt rentals. Once you’re there, go on beautiful winter hikes.
  • Take your dog for a walk.
  • Go cross-country skiing.
  • Attend a dog-sled race. You don’t have to live in Alaska to see one of these – check your state’s Department of Natural Resources page, they usually have a list of upcoming events
  • Go sledding.
  • Build a fort and have a snowball fight with your kids (or your spouse/partner). Or buy a snow block maker & build an igloo.
  • Take a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa and sit outside on your front porch swing with a good book.
  • Shovel paths in the snow.
