As the temperatures outside start to drop, and the days get shorter, you probably don’t feel like having a regular physical activity. And spending the afternoon snuggled into a blanket with a cup of hot tea while waiting for spring seems a far more pleasant option. Our tried and tested solutions will warm you up even on the gloomiest days, and help you stay active all year round.
Spin into fun on the ice rink
Ice skating is the perfect winter exercise for all ages, and a great way to top up your energy levels when you need them most. It improves coordination, balance and spatial orientation, so it can be a great exercise before hitting the slope on your snowboard or skis. Even though ice skating doesn’t seem like a very hard workout, it can burn up to 800 calories per hour without putting as much strain on your joints as a 60-minute jog. So you can indulge in festive cakes and pies without any guilt, as long as you plan some fun on the ice rink between the pre-Christmas shopping marathon and family gatherings.
Wkręć się w dobrą zabawę na lodowisku
Jazda na łyżwach to bezkonkurencyjna atrakcja zimową porą, która pobudza do działania wszystkich – bez względu na wiek. Poprawia koordynację, równowagę i orientację przestrzenną, dlatego może być rewelacyjnym ćwiczeniem przed wyskoczeniem na deskę snowboardową czy narty. Choć wydaje się stosunkowo niepozornym treningiem, pozwala spalić nawet 800 kalorii w jedną godzinę, a przy tym nie obciąża tak mocno stawów, jak 60-minutowy jogging. Możesz więc bez większych wyrzutów sumienia skosztować świątecznych wypieków, pod warunkiem, że zaplanujesz zabawę na lodowisku między maratonem przedświątecznych zakupów i spotkań.
Going ice skating is also a fun way to spend time actively with your friends. Skating on an outdoor ice rink is a great way to properly oxygenate your body, strengthen your immune system, and improve your respiratory and cardiovascular functions. It’s time to put on your skates for some “ice capades”!
Recharge in the sauna
Regardless of how often you work out, your body needs a helping hand to fight off viruses and regenerate properly. Regular visits to the sauna is the best gift you can give to your health. Exposing your body to high temperatures stimulates the removal of toxins and boosts immunity levels, helping to stave off viral and bacterial infections.
Studies published in Springerplus have shown that post-workout sauna sessions are an effective method to reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and improve body regeneration. So when putting together a workout plan for the next month,
don’t forget to treat yourself to some relaxation in the sauna.
Take a deep breath in the salt cave
When trying to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, do not forget about yourself. The end of the year is a good time to take stock and pay attention to your own needs. If you are looking for a place where you can soothe your nerves, unwind, and get your mind off the daily grind, the salt cave will be a real hit, as it reduces stress and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. Its unique microclimate, similar to that of the seaside, helps to calm the body, improve health and immunity, perk up your mood, and even enhance the appearance and condition of your skin.
