Today, more than ever in our history, more people live in cities than in open and rural spaces. Additionally, we spend as much as 90 percent of our time indoors, which is a shame as spending time outside holds many benefits. That is, spending time outdoors proves to be a mood lifter as well as an overall health booster. As the weather is getting nicer, it’s time you considered spending more time outdoors. And if you plan on spending more time outside, you should do so relaxing on Tortuga outdoor furniture.
So, what does being outside do for you?
The production of vitamin D is triggered by sunlight. This critical vitamin has been proven to prevent obesity, certain cancers, inflammation and hormonal problems, and it also boosts your immune system.
Spending time outdoors increases your quality of sleep. That is, by spending more time outside, you are able to fall asleep faster at night and wake up feeling more refreshed.
Sitting outside helps you to relax and disconnect from the pressures and worries that stress you out. Sitting outdoors clears your mind. In fact, sitting outside for 5 minutes has a positive effect on your mood and blood pressure.
Staring at a computer screen or television set all day will take its toll on your eyes. When your eyes drink in large landscapes instead of small screens, it reduces nearsightedness.
Lastly, you have been cooped up all winter, and stress has been building up and depression is setting in. You have been in that dark house way too long, so do yourself a favor and spend some time outside on your new resin wicker outdoor furniture.
