(HealthDay News) -- As you age, it can be difficult to stay active, particularly during winter. The National Institute on Aging urges people to stay active all year long.

Here are the agency's suggestions:

  • If you have grandchildren, when they visit, head outside to build a snowman together or go ice-skating.
  • If it is very cold, consider exercising indoors or joining a mall walking group.
  • Join a fitness center.
  • Take a dance class.
