Being More Active Part 4

Don’t let bad weather slow you down.
  • There are many ways to be active at home:
    • if you have stairs—make a few extra trips.
    • if you don’t have much room, you can run or march in place.
  • Grab an umbrella and a friend and go for a walk in the rain or walk at the mall.
  • After a brisk walk in cold weather, treat yourself to a nice, hot cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
  • If the weather is cold, dress warmly—wear layers and a hat and gloves.
  • If it’s hot, swim, take a brisk walk in an air-conditioned building, or walk first thing in the morning or in the evening in a well-lit area.
  • If you are active outside in the heat, drink plenty of water.
