Benefits of Spending Time Outdoors

Creating your own sanctuary in your garden is so important for mental wellbeing.

Providing somewhere you can relax, enjoy the fresh air and hopefully drive away the blues. Fresh air, sun, trees, plants, and nature all combine to contribute to better health.

Having your special place in the garden where you can relax, maybe with a book, newspaper or even just a snooze is important. This all combines to improve your mood and reduce stress levels. It's a fact that Anxiety, depression, and stress are notably decreased after spending time outdoors.


A simple way to find the perfect spot for relaxing is firstly finding a sunny spot in the garden, if you are a morning person then a South Easterly aspect may be best. if you are an afternoon person then a South Westerly direction is best. Why not add a really comfortable day bed or even a pod chair, to create the perfect relaxation space. Maze has one of the best selections available and offers something for everyone's budget.


Add extra scatter cushions for even more luxury, and never feel guilty for relaxing and banish thoughts that you might be wasting your time. Tell yourself this is for your health and wellbeing. Your body will thank you for it in the end.
