Get Your Bootie Outside!

It’s estimated we spend over 90% of our time indoors and with each generation, we seem to spend less and less time outside. Canadians need sunlight, everyone does! It allows the body to absorb vitamin D, which is great for bones by maintaining your calcium balance, and boosts your immune system, aids in cell differentiation, helps to regulate blood pressure, and plays a role in insulin secretion. Vitamin D helps prevent cancer and depression too.

On top of natural sunlight, reconnecting with the outdoors does a world of good to our emotional health and wellbeing. Plants and trees are natural air filters. Just being in a green area or a forest creates a significant reduction on stress levels while increasing your oxygen levels.

If you’re used to exercising in a gym, try going outside instead. You will likely experience far less ankle, foot, and knee injuries. Doing physical activity outside increases energy and decreases stress levels. It heightens mental awareness and can speed the recovery time after medical procedures.

So go enjoy some peace and quiet, and  gorgeous scenery, like these scenes of Muskoka in the summer.
