MAV's Winter Survival Tips:
1. Eat. Eat a lot. In the winter I'm always more hungry. I find the best thing to do is amp up my eating and that makes me sort of naturally amp up my desire to move/exercise more. It's a nice little trick.
2. Go to bed earlier; get up earlier. I am pretty serious about listening to my body in the winter. Here it's dark at 5p so I move everything up by an hour or two. I think it makes the days feel longer.
3. Layer. And tuck. I usually do tights under jeans and always wear tank tops tucked-in under shirts, sweaters, etc. The tuck is your best secret weapon against the cold creeping up into your soul.
