The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and spring is just around the corner. There is no better time to get outside and soak up the sun while you spend some time enjoying nature. 
There’s no denying that spending time outdoors comes with a number of physical and mental health benefits. Here are some of them, according to Harvard Medical School:

  • Being outside can increase your Vitamin D intake from your exposure to sunshine. Vitamin D has a number of health benefits, including protective effects against heart disease and depression, to name a few.
  • Spending time outdoors also leads to a more active lifestyle, and exercise has been shown to carry a number of both physical and mental health benefits.
  • Studies have shown that time outdoors can also boost your immune system, helping you to stay healthier and heal quicker.
  • Sunlight, exercise, and nature can all boost your mood and positively impact your stress levels and your overall mental well-being.

If you’re looking for an instant pick-me-up go outside and enjoy the great outdoors! Whether that means eating your lunch outside or going for a hike, there are a number of ways that you can incorporate outdoor time into your schedule.
