Despite frost warnings in parts of the country, it's almost June and definitely trending warmer. Time for all of us to get more active.
Except that teenager who's probably still asleep in his or her basement lair.
There's a good reason for that, according to a recent study out of the Université de Montréal. It found – surprise, surprise – that teens are more active in the warmer months than during the dead of winter.
No shocker there. However, the study — published in the Annals of Epidemiology — also found that the winter drop-off continues and builds each year. Your kid may be getting a little more active in the spring and summer, but not active enough to compensate for the previous winter's drop-off.
