Active Living in Winter

Updated: Feb 6

Winter is here, but that doesn't mean you should curl up, stay indoors, and be inactive. In fact, engaging in activity during the winter months can have many benefits for your health and well-being. Here are a few reasons why you should keep moving this winter and how physiotherapy can help you achieve your movement and mobility goals.


  • Being active can boost your immune system and help you fight off colds and flu. Exercise can also improve your mood and reduce stress, which can lower your risk of getting sick.

  • Being active can help you maintain or lose weight, which can prevent or manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis. Exercise can also improve your blood circulation and lower your blood pressure.

  • Being active can keep your muscles, bones, and joints strong and flexible, which can prevent injuries and pain. Exercise can also improve your balance and coordination, which can reduce your risk of falls and fractures.
