One great way to enjoy life and the company of others is through outdoor activities. The Great Outdoors is for you to enjoy by walking a trail or sitting in a park. In addition to personal pleasure, there are other benefits to doing outdoor activities. Let’s explore how doing outdoor activities can improve your quality of life:

1. The quality of outdoor air — Indoor air has lower quality rates of oxygen compared to outdoor air. The high amounts of oxygen in the outdoors improve the air in your lungs. You are also exposed to more pollutants with indoor air, due to chemicals released from household products and building materials.

2. More brain stimulation — Being outdoors increases your mind’s alertness while your eyes take in a scenic view. As you job, bike, sail or ride an ATV, your mind is enlightened with views of mountains, rivers, lakes, and sunrises.

3. A natural source of vitamin D — While you’re outdoors taking in the sun, you are also absorbing vitamin D from the sunlight. We need this nutrient to prevent diseases, improve bone health and also improve your mental health.

4. Help boost the economy — Outdoor recreation activities accounted for 2.1% or $459.8 billion of the national gross domestic product in 2019. When people go snowmobiling, boating, or walk a trail they are providing jobs for those who work in this industry.
