National Winter Walk Day

Wednesday, February 6th is Winter Walk Day across Canada. It’s the perfect opportunity for parents and kids to get outside together and stretch those legs! Walk to school for daily physical activity, a healthier environment, safer streets, making friends and… having fun! Walking is the simplest form of exercise and helps kids get those 60 minutes of daily physical activity they need.  Winter is still a great time to walk and be outside and it’s also a great cure for those winter blues!  Dress properly and don’t let cold, wind, snow or rain keep you from heading out for a walk. Below are some great winter weather dressing tips from Green Communities Canada:

  • Keep hands and head covered to prevent heat loss;
  • Wear warm, waterproof boots;
  • Wear a warm coat that deflects the wind;
  • Woolen clothing helps to retain heat;
  • On really cold days, wear a scarf over your face and mouth;
  • If possible, change wet clothes at school;
  • Wear clothing or carry knapsacks with reflective material – it’s important to be seen;
  • Below -25 degrees Celsius is considered too cold for walking, so move your walk indoors or select another day.
