So, with winter well and truly upon us, it can be hard to find the motivation to get active. But, don’t worry! We’ve got some great ideas for how you can keep fit in this chilly weather…

Walk the dog

If you have a dog, then you should be taking them on walks. They need exercise, too! A walk is great for your health and social life, so it’s win-win all around. Plus, dogs are great company—and if you need some alone time to think or work out a problem in your head without distractions (or the cat), they’ll be there for that too.

Take the stairs at work.

If you’re a fan of the gym and working out, then this is an easy one to put into action. If not, it’s still worth doing as it can help you lose weight and feel more energetic. The trick is to make sure that your stair climbing is actually counted as exercise time by your phone or other device so that you log it in your app. This way, if you have a goal to climb steps each day, then you’ll know how far away from achieving that goal you actually are and can keep track of your progress visually!


  • Gardening is a great way to get outside.
  • Gardening can be a great stress reliever.
  • Gardening is a good way to get some exercise, especially if you’re trying to lose weight or tone up your muscles.
  • Gardening is a great way to spend time with family and friends, especially if it involves using new tools and techniques that are fun for everyone!

Walking to work instead of driving.

When you walk to work, you get the added benefit of breaking a sweat and beating the winter blues. But did you know that walking can also help your health? Walking is great for cardiovascular fitness; in fact, just 90 minutes of brisk walking each week is enough to improve cholesterol levels, triglycerides and blood pressure. Walking reduces stress levels by boosting endorphins—the body’s feel-good hormones that reduce anxiety and depression. Plus it can even help prevent cancer!

And there are more benefits:

  • You’ll save money on fuel (and parking!)
  • You’ll reduce your carbon footprint by avoiding driving altogether when possible
  • You might connect with new people who live in your neighbourhood or work nearby—or maybe even make a friend while out on an afternoon stroll!

Housework-make a list of things you need to do and tick them off one at a time, you will feel good doing so much!

Housework is a great way to get your body moving, but it can also help you to make a list of things you need to do and tick them off one at a time. This will make you feel good and help you relax.

Dancing-if you don’t know dances there are loads of videos on YouTube to help you learn.

Dancing is an excellent way to keep active in the winter months. There are many online tutorials that can teach you how to dance, even if you have never danced before. You can learn dances with your kids or friends, or even by yourself. Dancing is fun and it’s physical, so it’s great for keeping fit!

Join the gym.

Join the gym.

It’s easy to get out of shape over the winter months, especially if you’re not used to staying active on a regular basis. If you want to stay fit, but don’t want to brave icy outdoor conditions or go for long walks in snow-covered areas, joining a local gym is one of your best bets.

At first it might sound silly—you’ll be working out indoors while everyone else is enjoying themselves outside! But there are many benefits:

  • You’ll have access to equipment tailored specifically for your needs and abilities. In most cases, gyms offer personalized training programs that can help you achieve whatever goals you set for yourself (like losing weight or toning up). Your health club may also offer group fitness classes like Zumba® and Pilates®, which are just as effective at keeping those muscles strong during winter months as those outdoor activities would be when it’s warmer out.
  • The staff will show you how to use all the equipment safely and correctly without injuring yourself (or anyone else). If they don’t know what they’re doing themselves then they shouldn’t be instructing anyone else either – so make sure whoever helps with this task has experience! It should also go without saying that having good customer service goes along way towards making us feel comfortable enough about coming back again next week.”

Play with children. Pick up the kids in a bear hug, kick footballs around. Play hide and seek. Be creative. Play music and pretend you’re on stage in front of thousands!!

  • Play hide and seek. You’re going to have to keep warm somehow, right? Who doesn’t want to be on the hunt for their family members in a winter wonderland?
  • Kick a football around. If you don’t have kids of your own, find someone who does and kick a ball around with them. Or even better, invite them over for dinner and play football in the backyard afterwards!
  • Get creative with music. There are so many fun ways that you can use music as an activity generator this winter! Whether it’s singing along to your favorite song or playing instruments together, being creative with sound is one of my favorite things about the season (besides hot chocolate). How about some carols in front of the fireplace? Or maybe some rap songs while shoveling snow? No matter what kind of music floats your boat this year—it’ll be sure to keep things fun during these long months ahead!


If you want to be more active during the winter months, these tips will help. You’ll have fun and feel great about yourself after trying them out!
