Get some spring in your step!
But, baby, it’s cold outside
Don’t let the cold air stop you from exercising, just simply dress to suit the outdoor temperature. We’re talking scarves, beanies, coats, the lot. But don’t go overboard, as your body temperature will increase once you get moving. Try exercising in the warmer times of the day to avoid the early morning and late evening chill. Perhaps a quick walk during your lunch break could work?
It’s raining and I don’t want to get wet
We hate to break it to you, but rain never killed anyone in Mandurah. Plus, we must be one of the luckiest towns in the world with the amount of sunshine we get in winter. Besides, we have the lovely redeveloped Mandurah Forum that serves as the perfect indoor walking venue with the added benefit of shopping (or window shopping). You could also add some incidental walking into your day by parking further away or walking down every aisle of the supermarket.
I don’t have time
Now this excuse isn’t just specific to winter, we hear this one all year round. If you were to write down everything you did for every minute of the day, surely you can spare 30 minutes for exercise. Think less television, less social media and better time management skills.
I don’t want to catch a cold
News flash! Exercising in the cold doesn’t give you a cold. In fact, exercise keeps us fit and healthy which actually boosts immunity. We don’t see the Olympic skiers bed ridden with head colds all year round now do we?
