I consider myself a moderate exercise enthusiast, and I have what I call “winter syndrome.” I literally cut my exercise in half during the winter season, I’m completely sure that this is due to me hating the cold, and I also take into consideration that most of my physical activities that I participate in are outdoors/summer related
