It can be difficult to find the time to workout during the fall and winter. With the sun setting earlier and earlier, it starts to feel like there are fewer hours in the day. Even though the number of hours in the day remains the same, day-to-day tasks just seem to take up more time. With such a busy schedule, it can be tough to find the time to exercise and stay in shape.

One way to stay in shape is to just for a run around the neighborhood. A good balance of cardio can help you avoid putting on a few extra pounds during the winter cold. Here are some benefits of daily cardio.

Weight Loss

If you want to lose unwanted fat, get up and get moving! Aside from eating well, doing your best to go for a run each day will help you stay in shape all winter long. Getting out of the house after a stressful day is not only an excellent way to lose weight, but it’s also a great way to unwind after a long day.

Better Sleep

Millions of people struggle to get a good night’s sleep. Whether they struggle to fall asleep or have trouble staying asleep, something that seems so simple to many us can be difficult for so many others. One way to improve the quality of your sleep is to get more exercise during the day. Burning off a lot of energy will help you fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow.

Better Mood/More Energy

It’s been proven that people who get daily exercise or are constantly in the gym will be in a better mood than those who don’t most of the time. While everyday stress can still build up, having the boosted energy and positive view of their body can really help increase one’s mood.

On top of going for a run around your neighborhood, New Jersey residents can also get involved in the many group activities at Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate.
