Why you should still be trying to get outside!
We’re living in a day and age where we are having to spend so much time in our homes, that we’re forgetting the benefits that come with being outdoors - getting some sun on our skin, and breathing the crisp fresh air into our lungs. Now, this article is not to encourage you to break any lockdown rules should there be any in your area, however, we are encouraging you to get outdoors for the approved amount of time that you’re able to.
It is completely understandable that you might be reluctant to head outside whilst living in a pandemic but we’re here to inform you that when done safely and within the guidelines, spending time outside is one of the easiest ways to improve your mental health and well-being. Whether you opt to go for a walk, run or even just spend some time on your balcony or in your backyard, here are some of the benefits you can expect:
- Improved brain function: spending time outside is linked to higher levels of mental clarity, concentration and creativity. So if you’re struggling to stay focused whilst working from home, take a quick break and head outside! Your brain will appreciate you for it.
- Boosts your Vitamin D intake: Getting consistent Vitamin D throughout the day can assist in battling depression and improving your immune system. If there was ever a time that we needed to have a strong immune system and assistance with depression, it is now.
- Gives you the opportunity to get up and get dressed: Taking the time to get out of bed and get dressed to go outside (in your Roar Republic activewear of course) will boost your energy levels and make you feel better about yourself.
So go on everyone, get up, get your Roar Republic activewear on and get outside! Your body will thank you for it.
