Why Getting Outside is So Good for You
Are You Nature-Deprived?

Totally love my morning outdoor walks with neighbor and her dog! Just had my blood checked and Vitamin D is really high...Getting plenty!
Now that the weather is cooling down a wee bit (It's only supposed to be 98 today, which is better than the 105 to 114 it's been the last few weeks) I will venture forth if only for a lovely walk.
I've been walking outside for 120 days straight and plan on continuing that through the seasons...like the article, come rain or shine (or snow or any other hazards that may stand in my way).
Love being outdoors
Before this stupid virus I was a part of a hiking group we hiked all over the Bay Area it was great I hope can do it again.
I have been walking down and up the driveway 5 minutes at a time several times a day. Also work in the garden after breakfast. I really enjoy being outside!
This information does not surprise me at all! I've been spending a lot more time outside since quarantine began and I feel much better!
Informative article. Would be interested to see updates to 2020.
Walking by the beach and gardening are my choices to get outdoors. I walk the beach year round and love to see the seasonal changes.
Trying to get out early enough to avoid most of the heat and humidity. Bugs are a killer though!
I'm outside daily, even if it's just for a few minutes.
Way too hot and muggy to get out, but I do plan to water my pots and deadhead a few plants. Then I'll come in and wilt! Enjoyed the article.
I am determined to try my yoga outside
Nature has always been my cure all. Living in the country is impacting my health and weight in such positive ways. I agree with AllenJoseph, it is good to pause and thank God for the gifts of nature.
Just taking a few moments to step outside and take a few deep breaths can be refreshing!
