Earth Day 2022

Did you know that spending time outside is part of Inspired Health Group's Physical Activity philosophy?  Spending time outside has many health benefits. Many of our team members enjoy being outside and notice the positive impact that can come along with being 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

Trade some Indoor Time for Outdoor Time!

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.
