You have likely heard the song walk like an Egyptian, however, in the wintertime when there is snow and ice on the ground, it is important to walk like a penguin. The penguin waddle helps to keep a safer centre of gravity. Short steps also keep you more balanced and helps to prevent falls. You can also extend your arms out from your sides to increase your centre of gravity. Don’t keep your hands in your pockets because if you do slip, you want to make sure your hands can protect you. Walking slowly with short strides and landing flat-footed will help to keep you safe this winter. Just remember to walk like a penguin!
