TOP 5 BENEFITS TO OUTDOOR EXERCISE ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ
-
1. Sunshine - The Vitamin D we get from exposure to the sun has awesome benefits (when you do it in moderation, obvs). Its a common treatment for depression and other mood disorders.
Unsurprising really when you think about how good you feel when you step into some sun rays. Endorphins (which lift your mood) are released by the body when you get some sunshine. Thatโ€™s a win! โ˜€๏ธ
-
2. Mental Stimulation - Get outside for mental stimulation, something that indoor exercise just doesn't seem to give. Staring at the same 4 walls of your house or gym can be pretty dull, so take it outside for some brain stimulation and give your mind a workout too!
-
3. Psychological Benefits - An increasing amount of research shows outdoor activity is great for the mind. Exercising amongst trees and wildlife can give you a healthy mood boost and can help to combat anxiety and stress. Bonus points if you take your shoes off to feel the grass or sand under your feet.
-
4. New Exercises - Despite claims that machines are a great simulation of the real thing, using a treadmill day in and day out will use the same muscles. Step outside for different inclines and street camber to switch on those muscles you never thought you had!
-
5. More varied workouts - Outside you'll find different terrain that can't properly be simulated in the studio. You find hills and hit different surfaces (think sand, mud, grass, gravel) and flex limbs in different ways to handle it.
