3 great reasons to head outdoors this winter

It’s tempting to spend the winter hibernating under a blanket with a good book. However, staying inside would mean missing out on the many benefits of spending time outdoors. Here are three good reasons to put on your warmest winter clothes and head outside. 
1. It’s fun. Winter sports like sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and skating are just plain fun. What’s better than an epic snowball fight or building a snow fort with friends and family members? This winter, head outside and play. 
2. It’s healthy. Being outdoors and participating in winter activities is good for your physical and mental health. You’ll get in a good workout, and spending time in the sun and fresh air is sure to put you in a better mood.
3. It’s beautiful. Nothing embellishes a landscape quite like fresh snow. It completely transforms the scenery, allowing you to see familiar sights in a new way. Take a walk around your neighbourhood or make a trip to the local park to see nature in all its splendour.
Having fun outdoors instead of staying inside makes the season more enjoyable and will make it go by quicker. So get those mittens on and go discover the best that winter has to offer.
