Keep­ing mo­ti­vated, ac­tive and warm

Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

WIN­TER? Don’t you mean the sea­son of Net­flix, hot choco­late and track pants?

Here are four steps to mak­ing the most of the cooler cli­mate.

Change your mind. Win­ter isn’t just about cold weather, it’s a whole new sea­son. Em­brace the time of year by sit­ting down and re­vis­it­ing your goals, then plan out what you’d like to ac­com­plish dur­ing the next few months.

Take up a win­ter sport. If you’re a com­pet­i­tive type, why not try a new sport? Okay so we’re on the wrong part of the world to take up ski­ing but the Whit­sun­day PCYC of­fers a won­der­ful ar­ray of in­door sports.

Get cre­ative at home. Per­haps the gym can be more of a has­sle when it is cold out­side. Per­haps putting on your run­ners when it’s still dark out­side is not quite up your al­ley. In­stead, work out at home, where’s it’s cosy and warm.

Op­ti­mise your out­fit. If noth­ing can keep out of the gym and away from your goals, then just dress right. A thin syn­thetic ma­te­rial, such as polypropy­lene, to draw sweat away from your body.
