Spring is The Time For Growth
Winter in the midwest has a way of creating barriers for many of us. Whether it keeps us from getting out into the community, or limiting opportunities for socializing, winter has a way of keeping us inside. Don’t worry, Spring is almost here, and with that, many of us cannot wait to get outside. When we are preparing ourselves to get through another year, staying active and eatting healthy are two things that don’t have to wait until spring, or cost us much. Whether you have limited mobility from a disability or a recent fall on the ice, here are some tips and excercises that help keep you active even during the winter months. Also, having fresh vegtables on-hand is something you don’t have to spend alot of money on.
