Long, cold winters are a fact of life in Canada. But while enjoying a few warm chocolate chip cookies by a crackling fire might be the ultimate cosy night in, it’s easy to start feeling sluggish when it becomes routine.

When snow and ice conspire to keep you indoors curled up under a blanket in your favourite chair, try these tips to break the habit and get moving:

Take vitamin D3 to supplement the missing sunshine during those long, dark days.

Go for a walk – with snowshoes or cross-country skis if you like – down your favourite snowy path.

Trick your body and enjoy guilt-free comfort food treats made with healthier alternatives and smart substitutes.

Start a new routine – it only takes 21 days to create a new habit.

Start planning your summer vacation. And while you’re picturing yourself on the beach, consider kickstarting your weight management with a plan like the AdvoCare 24-day jumpstart program, a comprehensive supplementation and nutrition program designed to help you reach your wellness goals.
