How To Burn Calories During Winter

No doubt about it, it can be harder to motivate yourself to work out when the weather outside turns frightful. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still make it happen (writes Jon Bell of Actively Northwest in an article titled, "4 easy ways to burn calories this winter).

Here are just four of many that will help you stay fit this winter — without even knowing it (full article here):

  • Winter walking
  • Shoveling snow
  • Ice skating
  • Downhill skiing
