As the Earth completes the latter half of its orbit around the sun, marked by the beginning of the autumnal equinox, it means that the weather begins to get milder, chillier, while the days get shorter.
Unfortunately, this also means that many of us will begin to experience symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which may present as fatigue, irritability, mood swings, and depression. Colder weather is also a factor that may interfere with your golf game. In this post, we will share a few pointers about golfing in colder temps in order to keep your golf swings strong.
Get It To-Go
A little known fact is that the act of eating and digestion may actually raise your body temperature a degree or two. Therefore, it is a good idea to carefully consider what you eat in order to generate energy, along with the added benefit of an elevated body temperature. For an enhanced effect, try moving around while you eat, although you may look a tad out-of-place if you do. Hey, you have to do what you have to do to keep warm, right?
Keep It Moving
The internal temperature of the human body is roughly 98 ℉, allowing for minor fluctuations. Use it to your advantage! Although it may seem a little counterintuitive to constantly move against the brisk winds of the fall, it’s actually doing your body good by dispersing that warm blood to your extremities.
Again, you’re not dressing for Antarctica, but the days of shorts and a t-shirt are over. Try wearing some layers like a light jacket and especially a hat, because you lose about half of your body heat through your head. Your main goal here is to wear something comfortable that will keep you warm, but will also not hinder your movement on the green.
Speaking of dressing for the weather, just because you’re dressing for warmth and comfort doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable at the same time.
