Perth has a relatively great weather and climate, making it a perfect place for outdoorsy people. However, there are just some who rather stay indoors because of fear of getting sunburnt or skin cancer.
For those who fear spending time outdoors, know that science backs up the benefits of spending a little time outdoors.
It can help you improve the functions of your brain.
Taking in the beauty of Perth’s outdoors, whether in the park or just out on the deck of your home, already helps improve brain functionality. According to Action Awnings, it can enhance concentration and focus.
It helps you get the vitamin D your body so needs.
Vitamin D is one of the hardest-to-get types of vitamin, mainly because only very few natural foods contain it. The sun’s rays are your best source of Vitamin D, which plays a major role in bone growth and repair, cell growth and repair, improved immune and neuromuscular functions, as well as minimized inflammation.
It boosts moods positively.
Aside from helping reduce levels of stress, spending time outdoors can shift your negative moods and emotions towards the more positive ones. Just seeing the green of leaves, the vibrant colours of various flowers, and the fruits and nuts carried by trees can already make anyone smile.
The bottom line: The outdoors is a friend and not a fiend.
So spend more time outdoors. As a reminder though it is never a good idea to overexpose yourself to the sun. The sun, with all its health benefits, can also put you at risk of problems, particularly sunburns, skin irritation, and even cancer.
So when you want to spend some time outside in your outdoor area, make sure you have some type of protection. Set up bistro blinds in your Perth home and you can enjoy as much sunlight as you need while and put them down once you get enough of it.
