"January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow." Sara Coleridge
With the first real snowfall of the year in Lane End, Buckinghamshire and surrounds it can be hard to come up with ways to do activities and safely so. Whether braving the weather, or staying inside where it is safe and cosy, here's our guide to doing 4 things to make your feet and fingers glowing and fill your heart with excitement and contentment.
Sledding is the perfect snow day activity. Head to the local park or forest (in line with current travel restrictions), find a huge hill and sled your way to the bottom! Not only will you have hours of fun, you will also benefit from a full-body workout and increase calorie burn when doing so.
Walking or Hiking
A snow day is the ideal time to put some wellies, coats, beanies and gloves on and go for a revitalizing walk or hike. With hundreds of special parks and forests in the area, there is plenty of room to find a new path to explore. Any time out in the fresh outdoors will provide an opportunity to try appreciate quiet time and indulge in inner reflection - not to mention taking in the breathtaking views the Chilterns have to offer.
