Snow angels, toboggans, skiing, ice hockey – all terms that remind you of fun as a kid in your early years. Back then, going outside was easy. You never seemed to notice the cold. Your mother worried more about you catching a cold than you did. All you knew is that the powdery stuff was falling, and you needed to make it to the hill for some sledding. Fast forward a few decades, and going out in the bitter winter weather may affect your health. Staying inside is the norm instead of the exception. However, sitting in your chair wishing you were outside is no way to live your best years yet.
