Staying Active in the Winter Months

When temperatures drop in the winter, it is extremely easy to sleep instead of waking up to work out outside or even get to the gym. Sometimes, working out in colder weather is better than warmer weather; there is no humidity to deal with, exercise can even boosts your immune system, and you may even be able to work out longer since it is not as hot outside!

The American Heart Association recommends a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as aerobics each week. It is important to stay motivated and keep your body hydrated whether you decide to do your workouts outside or workouts inside. Your body needs water to function properly and to keep its internal body temperature regulated. Keep drinking and stay hydrated even if you are not very thirsty! Water is not the only option, hot beverages count too! Fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, strawberries, watermelon and celery have a high water content and are a great water source as well.

Outdoor workouts during the winter include walking, jogging, running, raking leaves, ice skating, shoveling snow, sledding and skiing. Make sure to stay safe and warm during these workouts by wearing the appropriate clothing and lots of layers! If your body gets too cold you could get hypothermia. Hypothermia occurs when your body can’t produce enough energy to keep your internal body temperature warm enough, or when the body temperature has fallen below 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Symptoms include lack of coordination, confusion, delayed reactions, slurred speech, shivering and cold hands and feet.

Too cold to go outside? Try some indoor workouts! Indoor workouts can include, but are not limited to aerobics, cardio, active housework such as vacuuming and sweeping, stair climbing, indoor sports and yoga. Going to the gym in the winter is always a great option as well.

Stay warm and keep motivated!

What our clients are saying

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”
