New Years is a time for new beginnings and the all too familiar new year’s resolution. For many it’s a time to start eating well, to be more organized, and to take better care of oneself in general. This new chapter sees all types of commitments taking place, many disintegrating within the first two weeks of the month. To help you keep on track and make those resolutions stick, we would like to suggest adding skiing in as a way to improve your life. This one activity can cover everything from losing weight to staying healthy, to helping combat an addiction to technology. Here’s exactly why skiing more should be part of your new year’s resolutions.
It keeps you healthy
Did you know that downhill skiing can burn upwards of 400 calories an hour? While uphill cross-country skiing can burn up to 1,000 calories an hour. With these facts, there’s no denying that skiing is physical. And it’s this very attribute that makes it a wonderful addition to anyone looking to get healthier, lose weight, and eat better in 2019.
Helps you put down your phone
If you’ve resolved this year to be a better friend or partner, improve your job performance, or achieve something creative, separating yourself from your device can help. And for some, the resolution might just be as simple as reducing the amount of time spent in front of a screen. When you’re skiing, there’s no time to be staring at your phone. Adding in more of this awesome activity can automatically reduce screen time. Easy as that!
It reduces stress
One way to make 2019 your best year yet is to look at reducing stress. In our opinion, skiing is the best stress reliever out there! It gets you out in nature and keeps you present. The fatigue and satisfaction that accompanies a day on the hill is food for the soul.
Connect more with friends
Life gets busy and often, spending time with friends and family takes a back seat. If spending more time with friends is one of your news years resolutions, just plan to go skiing! There’s plenty of time to catch up on the chair lift or gondola and we can’t forget all the fun of après.
