Winter Blues

June 24, 2021 - 3 months ago

The Winter Blues are here and many people might be experienceing them already. Some people may be feeling a little down, lacking energy, changed sleeping patterns, struggling to get out of bed. The cooler months make us want to hibenate and wish the 3 months will fly by. 

It’s important to keep a routine through winter and make sure your body is active or you will undo all the hard work you put in to your health and fitness in Summer and Autumn this year.

Playing sport

  • Allows the brain to release hormones like adrenaline, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, which can help make you feel happy.
  • Continues to tone and develop muscle strength through sport. If going to the gym is a drag, playing in a team sport does heaps for your cardio and muscle strength.
  • Connect with friends in your team on a weekly basis. 
  • Commit and make yourself accountable. When you sign up to a team you will make sure that you are there everyweek for your team.

Tip for teams: If your team is currently playing an outdoor sport and are really not feeling like playing outside again in Winter, then join one of the many indoor sports we have running. You’ll be able to see your mates once a week and keep up your fitness. It’s a win win.
