True, when winter comes we spend more time inside. But that doesn’t mean we have to stop being active! To keep moving on Monday, consider joining or scheduling an intramural game with your friends, family, co-workers, and other folks.
There’s a surprising number of sports you can play indoors like basketball, volleyball, swimming, tennis, soccer, and dodgeball in addition to the less obvious like roller skating, Double Dutch, tai chi, and even water polo.
Even if it’s winter, it’s important to keep moving and committed to fitness. And science says the benefits of group exercise include improved mental, emotional, and physical quality of life, and a reduction in perceived stress. All of these benefits add up when winter forces you to bring summer fun inside.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab a soccer ball or a basketball and have a great game at the gym, community center, or college sports facility. Monday is shaping up to be a great day to be inside and stay in shape – you’ve got a lot to look forward to this winter.
