Hi, I'm Dr.Wright, with a smart tip for cold weather workouts. Make your walk more enjoyable with these tips. First wear a scarf, if you wear a scarf or a face mask over your mouth and nose you'll be able to trap heat and water to humidify your breathe that's much easier on your respiratory system and it prevents cold air from drying out and irritating your bronchial passages.

Another important tip is to layer your clothing. Your bottom most layer should be light weight, use breathable fabrics that can wick away sweat and keep you dry. The next layer should provide insulation, leggings or a fleece top usually do the trick. On top your coat or jacket should offer protection against the wind rain and snow, to keep your feet dry choose socks made of moisture wicking fabric like wool or polypropylene.
