Our ambition at Milberry Green is to provide our visitors with the best possible outdoor experience while they stay in one of our shepherd's huts or bell tents! We thought we'd highlight some of the perks of getting outside for your health and wellbeing given that we're surrounded by miles of nature.
1. Improved Sleep
Our body's internal clock follows the sun, meaning the daylight wakes you up and nighttime makes you drowsy. Spending time in the sun can reduce how long it takes you to fall asleep and improve the quality of your rest too. Actual sunlight compared to artificial light has 200x more the effect on your sleep cycle!
2. Boosted Immune System
Naturally occurring, non-dangerous microorganisms can strengthen your immune system, lessening the impact of infections.
3. Vitamin D
For the health of your bones, blood cells, and immune system, vitamin D is vital. What's more, it helps with the body's absorption of minerals including calcium and phosphorus which support muscle function and bone growth.
4. Lowers Blood Pressure
According to studies, nitric oxide in the skin reacts to sunlight by expanding blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure. It's essential to keep a normal blood pressure range because doing so reduces your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
5. Increased Mood
Even 5 minutes of outdoor exercise can boost your self-esteem. Higher levels of happiness, attention, and calmness are helped by vitamin D. Additionally, being outside reduces anxiety and eases stress!
There are endless bonuses from stepping outside, and what's great, is that it's free!
