The Benefits of Being Outdoors

Have you ever gone outside, taken a fresh breath deep into your lungs, breathed out and wondered: “why does that feel so good?” Turns out it’s not just you, and it’s not a magical occurrence. Spending time outside can feel so rejuvenating for a myriad of scientific reasons.

Going outside grants you some pretty solid health benefits.

Chloe Metzger of actually shared someof these benefits in a post a while back, and I encourage you to get in there and check it out. For those of us who love spending time outdoors, it will only strengthen your desire to do it more often. And for those that don’t? Well, it may be just what you need to get out of the door every once in a while.

It’s healthy, it helps you feel great, and the science is there to back it up.
