It is very festive all around us, We love the sweet and savoury winter yummies, and we love to dress up in colourful winter attire. What's not to love about the winters? Just one thing, most people gain a few kilos in the winters. Less activity and rich food consumed during the lean months shows on our waist when the festive season comes to an end.

This is why we should all go out for a walk during the winters, ever day. But if this reason is not enough for you, here are six others!
