The groundhog predicted another 6 weeks of winter in Wisconsin, but don't let the cold and snow keep you from living life to the fullest. Sara Ifert, wellness coach at Go Simple Wellness, offers several suggestions for healthy living this winter:
Enjoy Madison Parks: Get vitamin D, fresh air, exercise, and FUN at local parks. From sledding at Elver park, to the many free skating rinks (rentals available at some parks) there are plenty of ways to stay active and enjoy the outdoors in winter. Getting outside is a great way to beat winter blues and have fun!
Browse Willy St. Co-op: With a few locations in town, you can find a friendly co-op nearby with plenty of natural foods, organic fruits and vegetables, green juices, and an excellent hot food selection for meals on busy nights.
Boost Health at Community Pharmacy: Your source for homeopathic products, natural body care items, pharmacy, and supplements has two locations in town. There are many great options and a knowledgeable staff to help you and your family stay healthy in the winter.
Relax at Floating Studios:Float Madison and Float Factor are both great places to go and unwind on a cold winter day. Floating has many health benefits, both emotional and physical. You will walk out with a relaxed mind AND muscles. Both studios have float rooms, which are perfect for those who get claustrophobic easily!
