Benefits of spending time outdoors over the holidays

There are many benefits to spending time outdoors over the holidays. For one, it can help you avoid the holiday blues.

Exposure to sunlight can help improve your mood and alleviate symptoms of SAD.

Spending time outdoors can also help reduce stress and anxiety. The fresh air and nature can be very calming and provide a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Holidays can be a busy and chaotic time, so it’s important to take some time for yourself to relax and rejuvenate.

In addition, getting exercise outdoors can help boost your energy levels and fight fatigue. Exercise has numerous health benefits, including reducing stress, improving sleep quality, and boosting your immune system. all of which are important during the holiday season when our bodies are under more stress than usual.

So this holiday season, make sure to spend some time outside! It will do wonders for your mind, body, and soul.
