Winter Walk

Recently I enjoyed a day out on the trails snowshoeing. I enjoyed this so much it seemed a great idea to encourage others to do the same.

Do yourself a favour and go on a daily walk, no matter what the weather is doing. Here are a few reasons to bundle up and head out:

Sunlight and just being outdoors can do wonders for lifting your mood!

A walk in the woods can help alleviate mental fatigue, and improve creative thinking. It’s also great for your health.

Winter is a great time to go bird watching. Due to the lack of leaves you can easily spot the birds.

And in the Parry Sound area you’re bound to find animal tracks in the snow!

Get outside for a walk and you’ll boost your levels of vitamin D.

Take advantage of every sunny winter day and go for a walk.

Getting outside is an effective way to counter mild depression, releasing endorphins that pick up your mood.

Walking in winter may help you burn extra calories and stay fit. Especially if you have to put forth a little extra effort to walk through the snow.

Most of us could benefit from moving more, and walking is a great year-round activity.

It’s peaceful during the winter, plus there are moments of real beauty. Even on an overcast day, there’s plenty to take in.

Parry Sound is fortunate to have many scenic spots for you to get outside.
