So the weather is too cold for outdoor exercise, let alone driving to the gym?  Try these indoor exercises instead — the only equipment required is YOU!

1) Jumping Jacks — Nothing gets your cardio level up quicker, and besides, you’ll feel like you’re a kid again!  And try alternating with jogging in place if you feel like kicking it up a notch.

2) Stair Stepping — If you don’t have stairs, use a big book (or sturdy chair) and step up and down while watching your favorite TV show.  This keeps your body (and mind) active and healthy.

3) Push-Ups — Another fantastic and highly-effective exercise.  And do them however they’re comfortable to you — on your knees, against a wall, etc.  Any which way, you’re building up arm strength and working out muscles in your chest area — which will make you feel stronger and more fit

4) Dance, Dance, Dance! — Dancing is a wonderful exercise, and great for your heart.  And not only that, but it can also lift your spirits and give your overall feeling of well-being a boost.  So in the privacy of your own home, turn up the tunes and dance to your heart’s content!
