Baby it’s cold outside…

It’s January, it’s cold and gloomy, the sun is MIA, germs are spreading, and it’s easy to get bogged down in the ho-hum every day.  Why not embrace the cold and look to the positive side!  Did you know that being cold has many health benefits, including activating brown fat and helping regulate body weight?

Now I’m not saying you need to go taking cold showers or anything, but there are some potential benefits to that as well…  But drinking cold water isn’t a bad idea - hey, we have a water drinking challenge in February anyway, why not make it cold?!

And if you do happen to be exercising in the cold, please dress appropriately!  Not that you need a calculator to figure this out, but here’s one anyway 🙂  The site contains some ads, but it provides great tips like “wear a hat” and “pants would probably be a good idea”.

Apparently these guys didn’t get the memo:

*NOT dressed appropriately…

If that’s not enough links in one post for you, here’s one more!
