More About 11 Benefits of Being Outdoors

Being outdoors is fun, but even more importantly, it’s good for the brain, body, and soul - no matter the weather!

1. BOOSTS YOUR ENERGY
Spending 20 minutes outside can give your brain an energy boost comparable to one cup of coffee.

2. IT FEELS EASIER TO EXERCISE
Thanks to your verdant(green) surroundings. Grass, trees, and plants might add a psychological energy boost to your workout.

3. GOOD FOR YOUR VISION
Research shows that kids who spend more time outdoors are less likely to develop nearsightedness.

4. NATURAL SUNLIGHT HELPS MITIGATE PAIN
Surgery patients who were exposed to high-intensity sunlight reported less stress and marginally less pain, and therefore took less pain medication.

5. BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Breathing in phytoncides, chemicals produced by plants, increases our levels of white blood cells.

6. FREE AROMATHERAPY
Natural scents like roses, freshly cut grass, and pine make you feel calmer and more relaxed.

7. ENHANCES CREATIVITY
If you’re struggling with writer’s block, you might want to ditch your laptop for the great outdoors.

8. HELPS WITH SAD
Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD, is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons. Spending time outside can lessen SAD’s severity.

9. GIVES YOU YOUR DAILY DOSE OF VITAMIN D
We get more than 90 percent of our vitamin D from casual exposure to sunlight.

10. RESTORES YOUR FOCUS
Can’t concentrate at work? Leave your office for a few minutes and go stroll in a nearby park.

11. THE OUTDOORS MAKES US BETTER PEOPLE.
Exposure to nature helps us remember and value more important things like relationships, sharing, and community.
