There is something beautiful about walking in the snow. Apparently (as long as you’re careful) it’s good for your health, too. According to practitioners, people who exercise outside benefit more than those who stay indoors. Here are a few reasons why:
- Even though exposure to the sun is limited on stormy days, even when every inch of skin is covered, there’s always more natural light outside than in, light your mood and vitamin levels need.
- Your body burns more calories when it needs to keep warm.
- Cold air is invigorating.
- The winter scenery sparks creativity and enthusiasm.
Plus, the snow reveals clues as to who else is hopping around out there with you.
