A long walk, a sweaty ski tour, relaxed skiing: Especially here in the mountains, there are endless opportunities to get active during the cold season. Provided you are properly prepared, the list of benefits for body and mind is just as long:
Natural "mood booster"
First things first: exercise in the fresh air lifts your mood. Movement increases the release of happy hormones such as serotonin and endorphins and reduces the stress hormone cortisol. This is a point in favor of more outdoor exercise, especially during the cold, dark season.
Strengthening the immune system
It's no secret: getting outside more often in winter strengthens your immune system. The new stimuli and fresh oxygen help to make the body more resistant. Properly equipped, of course. Because there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.
Improved performance and concentration
Anyone who regularly exercises in the early, cold hours of the morning knows that there is nothing more energizing for the day ahead. Your concentration runs at full speed for the next few hours. And, incidentally, your performance is increased – again, endorphins and serotonin are responsible for this.
We believe: It is essential to connect to nature on a regular basis and to be aware of the beauty it brings to this world. Our list could go on and on. But perhaps you already feel inspired to try out for yourself what time spent in the fresh air can do for you!
