Every move counts this winter

An active lifestyle can help to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. Being active also enhances our mental health and well-being, which can be really helpful during this season when days are shorter and darker.

We are lucky to have lots of activities at our doorstep to enjoy during the winter months. When choosing what to do, pick activities that you enjoy. If you like it, you’re more likely to do it!

Here are some examples of winter activities you can do in northern B.C.:

  • Snowshoeing
  • Cross-country skiing
  • Walking
  • Tobogganing
  • Snowboarding
  • Ice fishing
  • Alpine skiing
  • Skating
  • Building a snowman

Whatever winter activities you choose, make sure that you stay safe to prevent injury. Wear a helmet when skating or skiing, wear ice-grippers when walking, and wear reflective clothing if you are outside in the morning or after dark.

Choose activities that are fun and that you enjoy. Don’t forget to bring along your family and friends to join you on a road to better health!
