Going outdoors can sometimes feel like too much effort when you’re dealing with a chronic illness flare-up. But there are important benefits to be had by getting a little time in outdoors. And with the weather improving, there’s no time like the present. Read on to learn about how going outside can help you feel better.
Sunlight Boosts Vitamin D Levels
Vitamin D is a vital ingredient for a healthy immune system, and sunshine is the easiest way to get it. Just twenty minutes of sunlight produces up to 20,000 IUs of Vitamin D, so it’s worth stepping outdoors.
Grounding Might Help You Feel Better
Some studies have shown that getting in touch with the earth — literally — may reduce pain and lower stress. If you’ve spent time at a beach, you probably noticed the relaxing effect of sitting or laying on the sand. But a patch of grass in your yard or a nearby park can have the same effect.
Exercising outside is good for your body since it helps you move in more natural ways than most indoor exercises. Running on a treadmill, while not necessarily bad, works your muscles in an artificial way. Going for a morning stroll or a walk during sunset can provide physical benefits as well as psychological ones.
