Cooler temperatures and the slightest trickle of rain can send many of us back into our cars, driving even for the shortest distances.
But here's the good news! Winter walking is invigorating. It gets your heart pumping and puts you in touch with the seasons. Walking means jumping in puddles and feeling warm and refreshed after a brisk walk.
What's more, walking outdoors in winter helps you to keep bones strong, improves your mood and burns those calories! Plus, stepping out is a great way to get your daily dose of Vitamin D.
So get your raincoat and gloves out for a walk in winter!
