Cut couch time, catch trout instead. It’s healthier than couch time and overeating

cut couch[two_third] The holidays around the year-end are a traditional time for families and friends to get together and enjoy time together. On the other hand, it is also fraught with pitfalls. One is the danger of overindulging and the other biggie is inactivity. Nothing beats sitting on a comfortable couch after a filling meal and watching athletes contribute the activity to the mix. Let them be active while you hug the couch. That’s bad for your health, some say. And, indeed, to cut couch time and substitute moderate contemplative exercise is much better for us.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife and other organizations are offering alternatives to the dolce far niente part of the holidays. Relaxing while watching time go by, and letting your thoughts wander, may make you feel warm and comfortable at the time, but is it really good for your health?
No, not necessarily. In fact, too much of it proves to be detrimental. On the other hand, cut couch time and measured physical activities are beneficial for health and well-being. They help curtail the otherwise almost inevitable holiday blahs too much food and drink and couch time bring with them.
CDFW has just the right alternative for you to consider: Cut couch sitting and do some trout fishing instead. As in every year, the Department has been busily stocking California waters with trout ready to be caught. Unfavorable weather is making the job more difficult, but it cannot prevent CDFW from stocking as many waters with meal-sized trouts as possible.
I will spare you the list of ongoing projects and the difficulties and obstacles to overcome to improve fishing there. Let us instead have a look at the list of places that are fully stocked and waiting for anglers.
