Outdoor Activities to Beat Winter Boredom

It's easier to stay motivated to exercise during the summer. The challenge comes during the winter with the weather and coupled with all the delicious food for the upcoming holidays and from the many holiday parties you will attend.

Some experts suggest doing a little bit of exercise daily to stay motivated and to strengthen your exercise habit during the cold months. When it cold is so tempting to just sit on the sofa and just watch TV the last thing you want to do is to get stuck in that routine.
