What to do in winter?
Air quality often worsens in winter. In such a situation, exercising while staying indoors can be considered the appropriate option. If you decide to go out with sweat, even with a mask, you cannot save the eyes from pollution. When the level of pollution in the air increases, it is better to stay at home for maximum time. Children and the elderly need to be careful during this time. Activities like yoga, jogging and skipping can be done for fitness only by staying in your home.
