Ice skating, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, sledding, shoveling, or even just a plain old snow ball fight for an hour can burn crazy calories. It's a great way to get the whole family out together and the best part is, it can be so much fun you don't even realize your working! You would be amazed how much energy it takes to build a snowman with the kids.
Outdoor activities can also help:
- destress and get some fresh crisp air in the lungs
- raise your metabolism to adjust to the temp change
- offers physical benefits
- get some activity where you can so the winter blues don't get you down
