If you’re looking for some fun, healthy ideas on how to stay active during your holiday vacation, then we have great ones lined up below:

Find a sport 

Get off the couch each day and take a quick walk around the neighborhood or park. Don’t worry about going too far; a 5-minute walk is enough to keep you in shape.

Find a sport or activity that your whole family can enjoy together, like skiing, skating, sledding, ice fishing and more! You’ll not only feel the physical benefits of being active but also share quality time with loved ones.

Get outside during daylight hours as often as possible even if it means going for an evening stroll while bundled up in warm winter gear. Engaging in outdoor activities will help boost your mood and energy levels due to the natural light exposure (yes, there still are some!).

Don’t neglect releasing endorphins on vacation by planning something different each day: try yoga one morning followed by indoor rock climbing later that afternoon; take a spin class one day and attend an ice skating show the next.

Make your own fun!

Who says you have to be on vacation? You can stay active by organizing family game nights, making holiday crafts together or going sledding after snowfall (even if it’s just in the backyard!).

Tips for Keeping Warm without Heat in winter days

How do I know if my thermostat needs adjusting?

  • There are several signs that may suggest your temperature might be too low: an excessively high electric bill, cold drafty rooms, headaches and discomfort while sitting at work or home office desk.
  • Think about it like buying food, buy what makes sense! If you’re not able to stay warm with layers of clothes outside, think about how much more insulation they’ll offer if you’re wearing them.
  • If the heat is on, but not working well enough to keep your home warm, invest in a space heater or additional furnace filter for when it’s really cold outside.
