Staying Active During the Holidays

It’s that time of year again. Lights are hung, gifts are given and delicious food is consumed. Many people can get caught up in the holiday break and forget to take care of their body physically. Sometimes, going for a run in the winter weather is not always an option, and the gym can sometimes seem daunting.

So, here are a few excellent winter activities that will keep you active without you even knowing it! :

VanDusen Botanical Garden’s Festival of Lights

Ice Skating! A perfect way to get together with friends AND exercise. Although we may not all be professionals, the cold rink makes you want to move and get that blood flowing!

Skiing or Snowboarding! This does require some skill and can get pricy, but one day on the slopes and you’ll have definitely earned yourself a big cup of hot chocolate! If you can’t make it up to Whistler this winter, try one of the local mountains like Cypress!

Christmas Light’s Walk! It’s always nice to admire the time and effort some people put into decorating their house. Take this opportunity to walk around your neighbourhood with your dog or a loved one and enjoy the beauty of the Christmas lights! If you’re looking for something a little more professional, try checking out the lights at the VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver this winter.

Happy Holidays!
