WAY TO WELLNESS #77

Summer is here and for most of us, that means more time outside! The weather is warmer, but there are also some great benefits that go along with spending time connecting with nature all year long:

  • We all need a dose of vitamin D. The sun helps the body produce our own vitamin D which may help protect against cancer and chronic diseases, such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and more. Research shows time and again that more than 50% of the world’s population is deficient in this essential vitamin.
  • It’s a nice change of scenery. Fresh air, sunshine, green grass—it’s beautiful outside. Wander around your neighborhood and you may notice things and encounter people you’ve never seen before. Who knows, you may find inspiration in nature.
  • It can be good for your heart. Take a walk, hop on a bike, pick up the tennis racquet, dive in the lake or pool—the choices are endless. Not only is it fun, exercising makes you stronger, clears your mind and just may make you feel better.
  • It may lower stress and boost your mental health. Simply living in a neighborhood with more green space has the potential to lower symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, according to a recent study conducted by researchers at Medical College of Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin, Madison. 
  • It’s a good reason to unplug. Put down your smart phone, power down your lap top, turn off the TV and head out for the day. There is, quite literally, a whole world out there, waiting to be discovered.
