4 Benefits Of Getting Outside

Benefits of Getting Outside 

Our bodies need to be active, spend time in the warming sun, and simply breathe the fresh air. We understand that schedules can get busy, but to stay in optimum shape and be able to finish your to-do list, you need to spend time outside — especially if you’ve been cooped up all winter.

Importance of Spending Time In the Sun

There are so many benefits to spending time in the sun. The advantages are physical, psychological, and even spiritual. While we can list a thousand benefits, we wanted to share the top four! 

1). Helps Replenish Vitamin D

Your body needs vitamin D to survive. It aids your immune system while helping your body absorb certain other essential nutrients like calcium and phosphorus. By spending just fifteen minutes a day in the sunlight, you can achieve this, and your body will be thanking you!

2). Allows You To Catch Up With Friends

Maybe your schedule is crazy, and you’re finding it hard to gather with friends. If that’s the case, it might be very efficient to schedule social time around your workout.  You can go for a walk or a run, a bike ride, or a swim, and spend some much-needed time reconnecting with those you love. 

3). It Improves Your Focus

We all get distracted from time to time, but there have been many studies that demonstrate that a person who spends time outside, in nature, develops better concentration, focus, and overall cognitive capability.  (Try it, the next time you are immersed in a thorny, intellectual problem.  You will be pleasantly surprised!).

4). Helps With Your Immunity

If we’ve learned one thing throughout the past couple of pandemic years, it is that the health of our immune system is paramount. So why not give it the best chance to get stronger, and maintain that strength. The sun as a source of vitamin D helps boost your immunities, and sunlight also aids in the production of more T cells, known for fighting infections.


Invest In Your Health | Invest In Personal Mobility

One of the most efficient (and fun) ways you can spend your time outside this summer is by investing in your own personal mobility product.

Segways are a perfect personal mobility choice. With a Segway, you can explore your local community, and trails, and even see new places you haven’t been able to see before. Segways help you traverse different and difficult terrain like dirt, pavement, grass, and other surfaces —  giving you much more flexibility and freedom. 

Pedego E-bikes offer the ability for you to travel outside in the sun, without getting overly tired. They are battery-operated, and feature pedal assist, a throttle, and the ability to pedal manually, too, if you desire. The 3 riding modes give riders lots of choices to travel at their own pace and just receive assistance when it’s needed.
