Don't ditch your New Year's resolution just yet -- a new study has shown that working out in the cold can actually benefit your health and help you burn calories more efficiently.

According to Healthline, there are a number of sources that suggest we shouldn't hibernate all winter. Thanks to the "brown fat" that insulates our bodies, working out in the cold kicks this part of our body into high gear. As such, we burn more calories more efficiently.

Here are five winter hobbies to help improve your health.


Skiing is a whole body workout designed to strengthen your muscles and improve coordination. If you've never skied before, don't worry: there are plenty of beginner classes to introduce you to the sport.


Hiking is a wonderful activity because you can do it all year round. With the right type of rugged boots and the best tactical fleece job shirt, you can brave any mountain with ease while staying cool when your body temperature warms up. In particularly snowy months, don't hesitate to buy a pair of snowshoes for extra grip. Paired with your quality Danner Striker boots, the snow doesn't stand a chance.


It might not seem like sledding is a particularly active sport, but walking up a mountain over and over again is enough to give anyone a good workout. Sledding is particularly great because the whole family can get involved. If you're a more serious sledder, try your hand at dogsled racing for an intense experience.


You don't have to live in Canada to love hockey. The best part? You can enjoy this sport all year round with the help of an indoor ice rink. Many ice rinks and clubs even offer starter equipment to introduce you to the game. While you won't be able to wear your Danner Striker boots, you can rest assured that your selection of cooling shirts will prevent you from overheating during this intense workout.


Keep in mind that this sport is one of the more serious hobbies on the list. You need to do a little research to know what the appropriate hunting season is in your area. You will also need a hunting permit, a gun permit, and plenty of training before you handle a firearm. It's estimated that the number of women who enjoy guns and hunting has increased by nearly 20% in the last 10 years.
