Health Tip: Avoiding Cabin Fever This Winter

(HealthDay News) -- Sipping hot cocoa on the couch during winter may be a peaceful pursuit. But if cabin fever sets in on you or your family, it may make you very restless.

SCL Health gives advice for staying sane inside this winter:

  • Spend time in the kitchen. Cook fun, new meals.
  • Get crafty with an arts-and-crafts project.
  • Burn calories at an indoor rock climbing gym, trampoline park or yoga studio.
  • Bundle up and make snowmen, go sledding or play in the snow.
  • Have board game competitions.
  • Look for volunteer opportunities in your area.
