In many parts of the country people prefer to stay indoors during the cool winter months. As fall turns into winter, our trees lose their leaves. Snow begins to fall on the ground. Roads are icy. Days are short. Without a really good reason, most people don’t venture into the outdoors when it’s cold out. As winter comes to an end, though, daylight savings brings us the start of the outdoor seasons. Our days become longer and we become more productive. When the warmer days approach people start looking for reasons to get outside. Here’s a list of why we should all start heading outdoors:

5 Reasons to Get Outside Right Now:

  1. Dress in less! Leave your coats and jackets inside. All winter long you’ve had to bundle up. Put on shorts and short sleeves and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine on your skin. Absorb some of the natural Vitamin D that the sunlight brings with it. Vitamin D is thought to have health benefits such as cancer and obesity prevention as well as boosting the immune system.
  2. Take a walk or a jog and breathe in the fresh air. It’s a nice break from the stuffy confines of the house you’ve been cooped up in all winter with the windows closed. As you breathe in, really notice the smell of the grasses and flowers around you.
  3. Take a close look at the trees sprouting new growth, leaves and buds. They’ve been bare for many months now. Watch them come to life. Call a tree company to have them assess the health of the trees in your yard. Keep them healthy.
  4. Keep an eye out for crocuses, tulips and daffodils. The brightly colored flowers can cheer you up without any effort. The dismal gray days of winter will be gone for a few months now. Enjoy some color.
  5. With the new growth on your trees, shrubs and grass you’ll need to get outside and do some lawn and garden maintenance. Get outside early and stay on top of the work that needs to be done regularly.
