Spending time in the great outdoors does more than get you up off the couch. It rejuvenates your body and soul. Being in nature, breathing in the clean air, is one thing that many of us should do more; doing so has quite a few benefits.
So, if you needed an excuse to get your friends outside, here are a few reasons why you should have your next game of TinyPong™ outdoors!
Spending time in nature will...
Lower your stress levels
If you’ve had a rough week at work, heading outside is a great way to de-stress and decompress. Grabbing a few friends, chucking the TinyPong™ in the boot, and heading down to the local park for an afternoon of games is a great way to kick stress to the curb.
Lowering your stress levels does more than quiet anxiety, it makes sleeping easier and more restful. Keep these efforts up and your overall physical and mental health will improve!
Keep your Vitamin D levels healthy
We’re based in Queensland, the sunshine state, and we know that in the height of Summer it can be hard to convince ourselves to leave the air-conditioned office. But still, getting a daily dose of Vitamin D is important to our health.
Vitamin D is vital for growing bodies, and for keeping your bones healthy as you age! You need Vitamin D to absorb calcium properly and your bones need calcium to grow strong and sturdy - so make sure that you get some sun!
Sunlight is the best source of Vitamin D! Take the TinyPong™ outside for a game or two each week in Summer, and a few more games in Winter, as a way to have some fun in the sun.
Help you breathe easier
Getting away from the busy city, the crush of suburbia, does more than lower stress levels, it makes it easier to breathe! Cities are full of pollution and heavily-trafficked roads, but did you know that indoor air pollution is a thing as well? Inadequate airflow keeps chemicals, mould spores, and carbon dioxide circulating in indoor environments - all of which aren’t the best for you to be breathing in.
Getting out of the house, even just for a walk through your local park, is a great way to get a fresh breath of air. Or, even better, head out for a weekend away at the beach or national park - you can fit the TinyPong™ in beside the camping gear!
It can be hard for many of us to find the time to get away from the chaos of everyday life. Work and errands eat up so much of our time, and heading out and letting nature recharge your soul takes a backseat. Still, it is important to make time for yourself. So, grab your pals, your TinyPong™, and head outdoors this weekend!
