7 Ways to Stay Physically Active in the Winter

As the temperature drops and the snow falls, it can become easier than ever to want to stay inside. The sun rises later, sets earlier, and it is more difficult to do anything outdoors. However, it is essential to get exercise all year, and we can't afford to take several months off. That cold chill shouldn't get in the way of our physical and mental health during the winter season. To help combat that lazy winter feeling, here are a few strategies to make it easier to stay active all year:

     7. Find a Workout Partner

Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation to exercise. A workout partner can help keep you on track. When you are feeling lazy, they can hold you accountable. It can be helpful to have a workout partner to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly and completely. Not only that, but workout partners can make exercising more fun, so it becomes something to look forward to each day, rather than dreading it. Finally, it is safer to exercise with a partner. They can help identify problems and provide help in case of an accident.

10 Tips to Overcome Writer's Block

Have you found yourself stuck in your writing? Perhaps your pen was flying across the page, and then it seems as if, suddenly, the creativity has run dry? This experience is commonly known as writer's block. It may be discouraging and even frustrating, but you are not alone. Writer's block is a normal sensation. To help get past this roadblock in your writing, consider the following tips!

     10. Freewrite

Freewriting can be extremely helpful to plow through writer's block. The idea is to set a time limit (we recommend starting with 5 or 10 minutes) and just write. It does not have to be on the topic you were writing about before or even make much sense. Just get words and sentences on paper. This has been known to help inspire new ideas or get past those that were holding you back. Some of the most significant issues with writer's block are self-criticism and doubt, which prevent you from putting pen to paper in fear of anything you write being unworthy of saving. Sometimes, it helps to see it on paper, progress, and you can always go back and edit later.
