Getting Back into Nature this Spring

As the chill of winter begins to thaw and daylight lengthens, it’s that time of year once again when we can take advantage of the great outdoors by getting back into nature. Spending time unplugged and outside has scientifically shown to be a natural antidote to the adverse effects of stress, a preventative measure against anxiety, and a booster for creativity.

 

In addition to the benefits of fresh air that your parents always emphasized, getting outside (and into your hot tub) has the following advantages:

 

Makes You Push Yourself Harder

Working out using cardio equipment at the gym involves limits on the pace and amount of time spent training. Studies have shown that people who take their work-outs outside do at least 30 minutes more of physical activity per week than those who do it inside. Running outside also introduces various terrains, hills, and locations, to further strengthen muscles and joints.

 

Makes You Focus

Trying to concentrate on too many activities or even a single topic for prolonged periods of time can be mentally draining. It even has a name, Directed Attention Fatigue. Being outside and just enjoying the natural scenery can give the cognitive portion of our brains a break, allowing us to focus better and renew our ability to be rational and patient.

 

Lowers Depression

People who frequent parks and green spaces have been shown in studies to have lower rates of depression and blood pressure. They have also been shown to be more social than those who avoid the outdoors. We believe there’s no better place to enhance your day with an outdoor moment than in the tranquility of your backyard inside a Beachcomber, which itself has been shown to lower stress and depression and improve cognitive health. Spending time in nature has also proven to be an effective booster of creativity.

 

Helps You Fight Disease

The Department of Environmental Conservation has published reports that show the correlation between breathing fresh air and disease prevention. Fresh air is full of phytoncides. These airborne chemicals given off by plants, have antibacterial and antifungal qualities that help plants fight disease. When people breathe in these chemicals, our bodies breathe in these benefits and have been shown to reduce our risks for numerous diseases including cancer. Click here for more details.

 

So get outside, and improve your health, mood, and productivity! We encourage you to explore building daily outside moments with the ultimate hot tub experience.
