    January 2015

    Winter is a good opportunity to engage in heart-healthy, calorie-burning exercise outdoors – it actually burns more calories than exercising indoors, because the cold requires extra exertion to raise a body’s temperature. According to an article published in The Washington Post on Dec. 30, 2014, fresh air (even when it’s cold air) and sunshine can help fend off symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. While it may be tempting to hibernate when temperatures drop, outdoor winter recreation can be quite beneficial to one’s health. Dress appropriately, stay hydrated and take time to warm up and cool down before working out. We’ll see you in the Garden!
