Honor earth day to spending more time outside this spring! Ever notice a change in your mood after you spend time outside? Learn the health benefits of being in the great outdoors!
"I’ve always had a love for nature and capturing beauty wherever I go. To truly feel in touch with myself and with nature brings a sense of peace and calmness within. I enjoy outdoor activities but what I love most is hiking, especially the trails at Letchworth State Park. Here is a photo of one of the waterfalls at the park."
- Sophia Saleh, Care Team Member at IHG
The average American spends 90% of our life indoors. This results in far less time outside in green, natural spaces than our ancestors. New research suggests activities or exercise performed outside in connection with nature have several unique health & wellness benefits. Our vitamin D levels increase with sensible sun exposure. Outdoor air can be fresher than indoors, as some air pollutant concentrations are typically two-to-five times & sometimes as high as 100 times higher indoors than outdoors. Also, outdoor activities can elevate our mood, reduce our stress levels, boost our immune system, improve sleep quality & enhance our concentration.
