Winter, because of its shorter days and colder temperatures, can be a challenging time to be physically active. However, a K-State Research and Extension northeast family and consumer sciences specialist and coordinator of the Walk Kansas program, says if we can identify our “WHY” for wanting to be physically active, have a plan for being outdoors and identify ways to stay active when we’re stuck indoors, we can enjoy the benefits that come from being physically active. Sharolyn Jackson says the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our physical activity routine – and people reacted differently to the change.
