6 important health benefits of fresh air
Fresh air is good for digestion
Fresh air helps you to digest food more effectively. That is why it’s great to take a small walk outside after you eat. From all the health benefits of fresh air, this one is really important if you are trying to lose weight.
Improves your blood pressure and heart rate
If you have a problem with blood pressure, you should avoid polluted environments and try to stay in surroundings that have a good supply of fresh air. Dirty environment forces the body to work harder, to get the amount of oxygen it needs.
Fresh air makes you happier
The amount of serotonin is affected by the amount of oxygen you inhale. Serotonin can significantly lighten your mood and promote a sense of happiness and well-being. Fresh air will leave you feeling more refreshed and relaxed.
Strengthens your immune system
White blood cells kill and fight bacteria and germs. They need enough oxygen to work and function properly.
Fresh air cleans your lungs
Fresh air helps the airways of your lungs to dilate more fully and improves the cleansing action of your lungs. When you exhale and breathe out through your lungs, you release airborne toxins from your body.
You will have more energy and sharper mind
Fresh air helps you to think better and increases your energy level. Your brain needs twenty percent of your body’s oxygen. More oxygen brings greater clarity to the brain, improves your concentration, helps you to think more clearly and has a positive effect on your energy level.
So do your body and mind a favour, grab your coat (and maybe an umbrella too) and incorporate some fabulous free fresh air into your daily routine.
