During the walk you will not only burn calories, but also stock the energy, catching at least a small part of the light of the day. Catch every sunny day, walk at lunch time, weekends and holidays go to the skating rink and a ski trip.
If we get out of the office or at home is not possible, try to provide as much natural light.
