With shorter days and cold, wet weather, here are five simple things you can do to keep active and healthy at home when it’s “too cold to go out”:

  1. Drink up. It’s just as important to stay hydrated in winter as it is in summer, even though you might not feel as thirsty.
  2. Eat plenty of immune boosting fruits and vegetables. Citrus, leafy greens, pineapple, carrots, papaya, brassicas, berries, ginger, turmeric, mushrooms and garlic are the best.
  3. Maintain your sleeping habits. Falling asleep on the couch on a cold Saturday afternoon might seem like a good idea, but it’s important to keep energised with your regular sleep routine.
  4. Climb stairs. Either at home or at work, just five minutes at a time climbing up and down the stairs is an intense and efficient workout.
  5. Dance. Put on your favourites tune, crank up the volume, and dance as though no-one is watching. It’s exercise AND it’s fun!
