The cold weather is almost gone and this morning, I swear I even heard the birds singing. The winter here can feel so long and when March hits, the end of winter brings a whole new energy level to the house.
I am not a winter person and it’s not unusual for me to feel “trapped indoors” because of the cold, miserable winter weather. Activity slows down and that important Vitamin D from the sun feels almost nonexistent. When springtime hits, I like to spend as much time outdoors to make up for the lost time in the winter.
I also like to increase my activity level after the droll winter and when it comes to my kids, I want to increase the exercise time they have too. It’s not that they don’t get any, but it seems that during the spring and summer — it’s the perfect time to establish a good exercise routine for the whole family.
