#GetOutside

Many women suffer from nature deficit disorder and do not even know it. The Nature Conservancy and Women’s Health Magazine recently surveyed women about the time they spend outdoors. The poll found that while women acknowledge that going outdoors is beneficial to their health, only 40 percent of women go outside at least one or two days each week. As a society, we have become connected to electronics that keep us indoors. This addiction is problematic to women’s overall health as there are countless benefits from spending time outdoors. Getting outside helps to relieve stress and lowers the rate of anxiety and depression. Doing activities outside also fights the growing obesity epidemic. Spending just 15 minutes outside each day can greatly benefit your health. Try going for a walk after dinner around the neighborhood. Or maybe practice some yoga outdoors. Simply sitting outdoors can be beneficial to your health so #GetOutside today!
