For those of us in the northern latitudes, March can feel interminable as our enjoyment of winter wanes. Hot cocoa by the fire has long lost its nostalgic appeal and even the snow banks seem tired. What wouldn’t we give for a warm spring day to run and play in some mood-boosting sunshine! But we don’t need to wait for spring to get out and get fit—there couldn’t be a better time to use our winter sports HD stock footage to inspire audiences to fight their cabin fever.


The Power of Visualization

We all know the itchy, jittery boredom that comes with late winter. Did you know the best way to fight the negative effects of cabin fever is to interact with nature? Basically, just go outside and play. And nothing motivates us to get moving like seeing other people loving the great outdoors. Science tells us that even just watching a short video of an outdoor sporting activity will leave audiences feeling happier and more inspired to prioritize fitness in their own lives. Our Membership Library has tons of great clips of wintertime fun to help inspire viewers to make the most of the last vestiges of winter.
