This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of prAna. The opinions are all mine.
Things get busy this time of year.
The kids have concerts and recitals. We have parties to go to. We have shopping to get done and friends to see and presents to ship. And it’s easy to let all those things get in the way of getting outside this winter for some fresh air and exercise. That’s usually the first thing to go.

So here are a few ideas for getting out during the busy holiday rush (and the cold winter months afterward!):
- go streaking — often, if I don’t have time for a good 3+ mile run, I’ll skip it altogether instead of getting in a smaller amount of exercise. That’s why I like this idea. Pledge to run or walk at least one mile every day from now until New Year’s Day. That’s all. One mile. It doesn’t take much time, but it gets us out of the house every day.
- take the family ice skating — learn or improve a skill and have a great time!
- go hiking or bird watching — take the same hike with your kids at different times of year and talk about what you see. Do the trees look different? Do you see different animals? Where do you think the other ones go? How do they survive during the cold winter months?
- head to the park
I was sent some prAna clothing to try out on our outdoor adventures and I really love it. I need a lot from my winter clothes here in Colorado. I need them to be warm, for starters. And comfy. And I’d like it if they actually looked cute and had a little style to them.
prAna Mariette Dress — currently on sale
I might love the sweater dress most, because it’s all warm and snugly like a sweater, but I can wear it just about anywhere — date night, ice skating, grocery shopping. I can layer it for freezing winter days, or wear it alone when it warms up in the spring. Easy, versatile, and able to be layered — all essential features for clothes in Colorado! PrAna also offers sustainable, fair trade items and the company is committed to giving back to communities around the world.
There are some great sales going on on the prAna website right now, too, and if you use my discount code — MHMF16LAFA (just copy and paste it right from this post) — you get an extra 15% off at checkout. Get some Christmas shopping done, and grab one or two things for you while you’re at it. Win.
How do you get outdoors in winter?
