Winter exercising tips

Here are some tips on how to remain fit during this winter season:

  1. Don’t forget layers: If your workout routine involves outdoor activities, make sure that your body is well prepared for the same. A common mistake that people make is not wearing enough layers under the assumption that exercising will naturally warm the body up. However, this can end up being dangerous as it can put the body at risk of hypothermia and frostbite. Remember to wear appropriate clothes, gloves, socks, shoes, caps, and earmuffs.
  2. Do not forget to drink water: Be it summers or winters, it is important to keep the body hydrated regardless of the season. Dehydration can lead to fatigue, nausea, headache, and other discomforts that affect the level of efficiency and endurance during exercise. This can lead to futile results.
  3. Watch what you eat: With the onset of winters, the festive season is set into motion. Mouthwatering delicacies are an integral part of it and it might not be easy to resist. However, the unmoderated consumption of sugar, salt, and processed items can lead to unhealthy consequences for the body. This festive season, don’t let your fitness go astray and be mindful about what, and how much you eat.
  4. Plan your workout: Snowstorms, winds, fog and other weather conditions are common during the winter season. Outdoor activities during these circumstances are often restricted for safety purposes. Keep a watch on the weather forecast and plan your workout accordingly to ensure a smooth and efficient exercise. 
  5. Be mindful of your health: If you suffer from chronic health conditions such as asthma, COPD, and other health complications that can be triggered by the cold, make sure that you take proper precautionary measures to avoid any unprecedented event from happening.
