Spring Weather! Today it is supposed to be almost 80 in NE Ohio. Beautiful words to my soul. After a long winter a day like today is a perfect opportunity to break routine and get outdoors! Being outdoors has many health benefits, from breathing fresh air to taking in the sun. A little sunshine feels great, can help lift feelings of depression, and is a great source of Vitamin D, so long as you protect yourself with sunscreen. Being outdoors in good weather also encourages physical activity. Try to spend time outdoors as often as you can.
- Read a book or newspaper outdoors on your lunch break. Or take a walk. (A Minute out of the Norm: Go For a Walk)
- Do gardening. It is rewarding, good therapy, and a great workout (The Many Benefits of a Garden)
- Go camping, hiking, or take nature walks with friends and family. (A Minute Out of the Norm: “I Spy… Nature”)
