How More Time Outdoors Can Improve Your Health

Outdoor Health Benefits

Having a stunning, well-designed outdoor space is a luxury in today’s digitally based world and something that homeowners and estate managers should take advantage of at every opportunity.

As most of our work requires us to stay inside all day, people are missing out on the amazing benefits that being outside in nature can provide. Not only does being outside feel good, but it also does good as it offers multiple benefits to your health.

To encourage you to make the most of your outdoor spaces and cultivate more time outside, here are the top health benefits that being outside can provide.

Better Air Quality

It should come as no surprise that the only way to get fresh air is to be outdoors.

Staying inside air-conditioned or artificially heated spaces all the time causes lethargy and can result in longer-term health problems. This is why it is so important for you to take regular breaks and get outdoors.

Plants are incredible as they release oxygen while also absorbing pollutants and carbon dioxide, so go outside to breathe in the pure air and see how much better you feel.

Regular interactions with fresh air can contribute to better respiratory health, as well as offer instant rejuvenation for the mind and body.

Natural Boost Of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is one of the most vital nutrients for our body’s health and overall wellness, yet most people do not get enough. The sun is a natural provider of vitamin D and just a few minutes of soaking in the rays can have lasting positive effects on your health.

The sun can improve our body’s ability to absorb calcium, leading to stronger bones, as well as fortifying our natural defences to contribute to a more robust immune system.

Encourages Exercise

Making sure you get enough movement into your daily routine can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. Simply spending time outdoors, whether that is walking, gardening or chasing the kids, encourages exercise and allows you to have fun while doing it.

Instead of struggling through a home workout or locking yourself in the gym for hours, go outside and enjoy the beauty of the landscape around you.

Organic Stress Relief

When things get too much, stepping away from it all and breathing in the fresh air can do wonders for your well-being. Having access to lush, green areas can provide natural stress relief and make it easier for people to unwind after difficult days.

Being outdoors not only offers a boost in essential nutrients but also encourages better breathing and absorption of pure air. All of this contributes to lower cortisol levels and improved management of stress, creating an overall happier outlook.

Increased Concentration And Creative Inspiration

Green areas can provide a lot of mental stimuli, inspiring cognitive function and increasing motivation.

While this applies to people of all ages, it is easier to see the benefits that being outdoors can provide to children. Kids who spend more time outdoors are reported to have better focus and greater curiosity, which aids in their mental development.

Take some time away from your desk, breathe deeply and simply watch the nature around you to rejuvenate your senses and bring back concentration.


Being outdoors can do wonders for your health and every landscape has the potential to become a hub for increased wellness. As a homeowner, taking care of your garden and designing an outdoor space you love can encourage more time spent outdoors and greater health.

From increased vitamin D levels to better stress management, nature can be incredibly healing for people of all ages.
