Day light and walk in fresh air

21 Day Wellbeing Challenge, Day #7

Daylight and fresh air are both important for our physical and mental health in several ways:

  • Vitamin D: Daylight exposure is the best source of vitamin D, which is important for strong bones, teeth, and muscles. Vitamin D also plays a role in supporting the immune system and reducing inflammation.
  • Circadian rhythm: Our bodies rely on exposure to daylight to regulate our sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm. A consistent sleep-wake cycle helps regulate important bodily functions, such as hormone production, digestion, and mood.
  • Mental health: Exposure to natural light and fresh air has been linked to improved mood and reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety. This may be due in part to the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals
  • Physical health: Walking in fresh air can help improve cardiovascular health, reduce blood pressure, and improve lung function. Walking outdoors also provides an opportunity for low-impact exercise and can help promote weight loss and improve overall fitness.

Overall, incorporating daylight and fresh air into our daily routines is important for promoting overall health and well-being. This can be as simple as taking a daily walk outside or spending time near a window with natural light.
