The saying is that youth is wasted on the young. But nothing was said about the Great Outdoors!
Therefore, our in-home care providers at Qualicare Newmarket want to help you take full advantage of all the health benefits of being outside.
Why Spend Time Outside?
Look at all the great reasons why you should spend as much time as you can outside:
First, your mood can greatly improve thanks to the fresh air and warm sunshine. In fact, some studies have found that the more time people spend outside, the less likely they are to be anxious or suffer from depression.
Therefore, the next time the weather is cooperating, why not take a nature walk or even enjoy a bike ride through Newmarket? You might just find the outdoors help you feel better both mentallyand physically, as well as gives you an overall positive outlook on life!
Second, you can find some of your missing energy. Have you ever started to feel tired around 2 p.m. and wished for the days of years’ past when you were able to have enough energy to keep you going from sun up to sun down?
Spending time outdoors can help to give you that gift of “energy” by increasing your sense of vitality and improving your energy levels to where you feel more alive throughout the day! Which is way better than always feeling like you must reach for a cup of coffee.
Finally, being outside can help set you up for a restful night’s sleep.
We all need our beauty sleep, especially as we age. When you spend time outside in the natural light, you are also regulating your internal clock that allows you to have a more restful sleep each night, which is a win-win!
