“Exercising in winter will become a habit one way or another — of doing it, or not doing it.”
It’s tough to stay fit on cold days. Winter mornings lead to curling up in your blankets for more time. Many people avoid exercising in winters – it’s cold one morning, and then something will come up the next day. One day becomes two or three and before you know it, a week has gone by and you haven’t exercise at all.
