Reimagining Winter Walks with Motion Heats Heated Gloves: The Top 10 Benefits of Winter Walking

Inspired by Connect Health's Blog on Winter Walking

Winter doesn’t have to be an inactive season, where you hibernate inside waiting for the first signs of spring. Walking in winter offers an array of health benefits, making it a perfect way to maintain an active lifestyle. And with our Motionheat heated gloves and our compact, high-performance batteries, being outside won’t mean having to be cold.  Let's explore the top 10 advantages of winter walking listed on Connect health, and explore how even a brisk 5-10 minute stroll can transform your health.

  1. Calorie-Burning Amplified - Cold temperatures require your body to work harder to sustain your core temperature. Extras like carrying a rucksack or using walking poles increase calorie burn, enhancing your winter walks further.
  2. A Sleep-Enhancing Activity - A brisk walk every day not only helps you trim down but also facilitates better sleep by boosting natural sleep hormones like melatonin.
  3. Clearer Mental Focus - Cooler temperatures can sharpen your cognitive functions. If you're grappling with focus issues, winter walking can be your antidote.
  4. Immunity Booster - Engaging in outdoor activities during winter can activate your immune system, thereby enhancing your body’s ability to ward off infections.
  5. Skin Rejuvenation - Moderate cold is beneficial for your skin, tightening cuticles and pores and making the skin less prone to redness and swelling.
  6. Intense Heart Workout - The effort your heart puts in to pump oxygenated blood during cold weather provides a more intense cardiovascular workout, contributing to overall heart health.
  7. Weight Management - Consistent brisk walks are proven to contribute to maintaining a healthier body mass index (BMI), helping you keep those extra pounds at bay.
  8. Stress Reducer - Outdoor walking increases your intake of oxygenated air and boosts serotonin and endorphin levels, which significantly helps in stress management.
  9. Social Well-being - Winter walks can be a social event, allowing you to bond with friends, family members, or pets contributing to your emotional well-being.
  10. Holistic Health Benefits - Walking during winter offers a wide array of health benefits ranging from strengthening bones to regulating cholesterol and improving cardiovascular health.
