Hello once again everyone! Well, my good friend Ilona and I are back with another collaboration today and we hope that you will enjoy it. I always enjoy doing these collaborations with Ilona, she is great and fun to work with. Please visit Ilona’s blog over at https://easydiet.blog for some great inspiration and fun each day.
Spending time outside, Mental and Physical benefits (collaboration)
For whatever reason people often spend too much time indoors. And that often means way too much sitting which is proven to be unhealthy. It can raise blood pressure, cause heart problems, arthritis, obesity and many other things.
We need to try and spend more time outside, getting fresh air into our lungs. I know that in many large cities getting fresh air outside isn’t often possible. But generally, being outside, getting some kind of exercise is always a good idea.
Even if you can’t exercise, just sitting outside can have a better influence on your health than being indoors all the time. If you can, go jogging, walking, do some gardening, even if it’s containers of flowers on a deck.
Maybe try photography, feeding birds or some other hobby. Find something to do that you enjoy and will take you outside on a daily basis and you will find it will make a big difference in your health and in your general outlook on life.
A healthy lifestyle is unthinkable without walks in the fresh air. Unfortunately, instead of spending time in the park or in the forest, we are increasingly choosing a TV and a computer.
The consequence can be nervous system diseases, chronic fatigue, weakened immunity. All this is avoided by the daily sip of fresh air and a few minutes spent in the wild.
Breathing, especially for people who do sports, the air is very important for the body. Unfortunately, when we do physical activity where there is not much air, we are damaging our body, increasing the risk of serious chronic diseases.
Walking in the park or in the forest not only relaxes the body and mind, but also provides the body with higher oxygen content. Take a deep breath while walking outdoors, move more actively.
Steve and Ilona.
