3 Reasons to Spend More Time Outside

April 20, 2024

Now that the weather is starting to cool down, you may be wanting to spend more time out on your Phoenix patio. If you are like us, we are sure that you are ready for a reprieve from the heat. If you love your patio’s landscaping, shade structure, fire or water feature then we are sure that you are more than ready to spend time outside. However, below are even more reasons why you should opt for spending a little time outdoors each day.  

Vitamin D

You are probably sick of people going on and on about vitamin D. However, there really is a reason that we always hear about the benefits of vitamin D. Most people are vitamin D deficient due to the amount of time that we spend inside and that is not good. Vitamin D helps prevent cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and has been linked to the prevention and treatment of many other ailments, as well as giving us overall better health and wellbeing.

Better Eye Health

Being outside has also proven to be good for our eyes. Chances are that if you are inside, you are staring at a screen, whether it be the computer at work or your TV or phone at home. Being outside helps to alleviate Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which can cause blurred or double vision, dry or red eyes, headaches, and more. Getting away from the computer or small screen of your phone will improve your health.

Enjoy Clean Air

Many stress about the state of our outdoor pollution and how terrible it is for your health. However, many don’t even know about indoor pollution that can be far worse for your health. Breathing polluted indoor air can increase the risk for serious health issues including heart disease, lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, and asthmatic attacks.
