The key to a healthy life? Lots of daylight and fresh air


A lack of daylight and fresh air not only puts you in a bad mood, it’s also detrimental to your health. If you spend most of your days at home or at the office, you have every reason to try and get out as much as possible. Not just in the summer, but throughout the year.

Why daylight is so important

Daylight is what tells our body to get going. It increases our concentration and even helps us to burn fat. During winter, however, the days shorten and the amount of daylight lessens. As a result, winter depression is a common mental health problem. Artificial lighting, after all, does not have the same effect as natural light. Do you feel a bit drowsy behind your desk at times? Now you know why.

Fresh air does wonders for your health

The less you come into contact with the fresh air, the higher your risk of health problems. Because houses these days are so well insulated, ventilation is more important than ever. Without proper ventilation, it’s only a matter of time before mould and other moisture problems start to occur and cause allergies or even asthma. In other words, be sure to ventilate your home sufficiently and spend as much time outside as you can. The oxygen will do your body good, helping it to detox more efficiently.

Enjoy the outdoors in your garden room

The advantages of spending time outdoors are not to be underestimated. But while taking walks in the park or enjoying your garden is easy enough in summer, getting enough sunlight and fresh air is less pleasant during the cold winter months. Unless you have a garden room, that is, which allows you to comfortably spend all the time you want in your garden. The wind and rain won’t get to you, and if you install a patio heater and side panels it becomes even warmer and cosier.
