We all do it… we get caught up and forget to look around and embrace our surroundings.  When I get caught up, and I have had a stressful day, there is nothing better than walking outside at the end of the day and taking in all of the fresh air possible.

Yep, that’s what I mean by the title.  Take in as much fresh air as you can!

Man, the days fly by, we get to work, we work hard, we immerse ourselves in our jobs or schoolwork, and oftentimes we forget to take a minute, look up, and get some fresh air!

Did you know that there are a lot of health benefits that we get from fresh air?  These are just a few of the benefits that we get from spending time in the fresh air:

  • Assists in digestion.
  • Great for blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Overall happiness.
  • Immune system boost.
  • Cleans your lungs.
  • Increases energy levels.
  • Leads to mind sharpness.

Who would have thought that fresh air would have that many benefits?!  Yep, I assure you, it does.

So, the next time that you have had a long day, or even just haven’t gotten a chance to go outside, just do it!  Take your dog for a walk, go for a walk yourself, or even go sit in the backyard.  You won’t regret it, and your body will thank you as well.
