Los Angeles, CA – 1/28/2014—
While many dread this time ofyear due to the colder temperatures, a recent research has suggested that mild,regular exposure to colder temperatures could assist in helping someone loseweight or maintain weight they have lost. This means that getting outdoors to engage in any form of activity couldbe beneficial to our health, despite the colder temperatures.
“Since most of us are exposed toindoor conditions 90 percent of the time, it is worth exploring health aspectsof ambient temperatures,” said one of the researchers from the MaastrichtUniversity medical Center in The Netherlands. He was speaking to results from a study that followed participants whospent two hours per day in lower temperatures to those who stayed indoors allthe time. Ofer the course of six weeks,there was a decrease in body fat among those who spent time outside, whilethose who remained indoors showed no change.
Perhaps in addition to regularexercise training, we as a society need to train ourselves to spend time intemperatures outside our comfort zones. This means getting outside for a few minutes per day even in coldertemperatures to give our bodies time to breathe in the fresh air and oxygen,which has also been shown to assist in weight loss goals.
There are plenty of outdoorexercises that we can safely engage in during the winter months. Outdoor walks on cleared roads or safepassages, even jogging and cycling is still possible with the rightprecautions. In the coldest temperaturesor during winter storms these activities must be avoided, but if the sun is outand temperature is reasonable there’s no reason one can’t engage in normaloutdoor activities.
Proper clothing for outdoorexercise is essential, but this is an investment that ensures one can stayactive throughout any season all year long and reap the benefits of continuousexercise – despite a decrease in temperature.
