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

“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.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“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!”
