Another great summer season is coming to a close but that doesn’t mean that you need to stop dining outdoors just yet. The fall brings crisp weather, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee outside in the warm morning sunshine.
Spending time outdoors can be beneficial for your health; consider purchasing outdoor furniture and set up a cozy space to sit outside.
If you felt uninspired to sit outside this summer, it’s time to think about investing in some outdoor furniture. Not only will you thank yourself when you’re settling in for a bonfire in the backyard on a comfortable chair, but having good outdoor furniture can actually benefit your health.
On average, Americans spend about 93 percent of their lives indoors among their home, office, and car. As it turns out, spending more time in the great outdoors, even when the weather begins to cool off, can be extremely good for your health. Pollutants tend to collect indoors, which means when you take a breath of fresh air outside, you truly are breathing in fresh air compared to what typically is found inside of homes and offices.
Spending time outside can boost your mood, increase your creativity, and give you better self-esteem. Vitamin D, which we absorb through our skin from the sun, is important for fighting infections, and it’s estimated that most of Americans are not getting enough of it.
Spending time outside can also help us feel more relaxed, which many people struggle with. It’s been shown that spending time in nature decreases the amount of cortisol, a stress hormone found in the body.
Consider purchasing outdoor furniture to investing in your health and brighten up your outdoor space. Carriage House Furnishings has a variety of outdoor furniture available from chairs to bistro tables.
