Today, more and more people are looking for ways to improve their health, increase vitamin intake and feel better. They purchase vitamins and spend too much money on numerous ‘feel better quick’ and ‘get healthy now’ products that may or may not work. You will be glad to know there is a better, more natural choice.

Spending Time Outdoors can Improve Your Health

There are so many great health reasons to get out of the house and start enjoying the sunlight and your surroundings. You can improve your mental and physical state by spending time outdoors. To make this plausible, you may want to make your outdoor space more inviting and comfortable with comfortable and inviting furniture such as a hammock or Classic Teak Steamer Chair. Here’s why!

#1 – Get your natural (and free!) Vitamin D directly from the sun’s rays. Did you know that approximately 77% of population are low in Vitamin D? This is pretty important since Vitamin D deficits have been linked to cardiovascular disease and cancer.

#2- Sunlight (aka Vitamin D) helps strengthen your bones. As the body ages, low levels of Vitamin D means improper absorption of the Calcium needed to keep bones healthy and strong. These low levels can increase your odds of developing osteoporosis so it is very important to get some sun every day.

#3 – Sunlight can help keep you slim and trim. Seriously. When your body is lacking in Vitamin D, you often feel hungry when you shouldn’t be. These cravings will lead to snacking on foods you don’t really need.

#4 – Depression needs darkness to thrive. If you battle depression, nothing is more beneficial than getting out of the house and into natural light. Lounge on your sustainable source teak furniture and enjoy a good book or go for a stroll each day and you will start to feel better because Vitamin D will increase the Serotonin your body generates. (Serotonin is often called the ‘feel good’ hormone.)

#5 – Allow the sunlight to help increase the functions of your immune system. Your immune system needs adequate levels of Vitamin D to properly protect you from sickness and germs. Sunlight is a great cure for illness and autoimmune disorders, thanks to Vitamin D.

You can purchase outdoor furniture from many sources, making it even easier to enjoy the sun’s healing rays. Those who consider themselves stewards of the earth and her natural resources find it very important to support companies that strive to be environmentally friendly and use only sustainable sources during the production process.

Grab your hat and sunglasses, and maybe a favourite book as you head outdoors.
