As the days get longer and it gets warmer (hopefully!!), we should make the most of it and enjoy the fresh air...
So make it your mid-year resolution and get out more this summer. Here are some suggestions:
Try and get out at lunchtime for a short walk with your colleagues.
Why not take the kids out in evening, they can scoot or cycle whilst you get a brisk walk?
Take the dog for a long walk or go on a cycle ride just after you get in from work.
If you take the bus to work, get off a stop or two earlier.
Park a little further on the school run and enjoy the walk back with the kids, you get some quality time and maybe find a butterfly or two on your way.
Go to the local park and play football with the kids or some mates.
Fresh air cleans the lungs, improves blood pressure and heart rate and boosts the immune system. Increased oxygen levels in the body gives greater clarity to your brain and more energy for the body. Our brains use up to 20% of our body’s oxygen. Doing exercises increases oxygen levels; no wonder exercise helps your brain function!
