four reasons to...
GET OUT OF THE HOUSE MORE
1 Your vitamin D levels increase.
You’ll make all the vitamin D you need if you get outside a few times a week during the summer days and expose your arms and legs for 10 to 15 minutes each time.
2 You’ll get more exercise.
Children are twice as active when they’re outside. So go for walk, ride a bike, do some gardening or take the kids to the park.
3Your concentration will improve.
Studies on children with ADHD suggest that outdoor exercise can have positive effects. If you have trouble concentrating you might see if some outdoor activity – the greener the better – helps.
4It’s good for your heart.
Japanese researchers have shown that forest bathing and the practice of sitting in the forest lowers your blood pressure, pulse and heart rate. It is also said to decrease stress hormone levels.
