This week let’s encourage each other to get outdoors. Yes, I know it is beginning to get cooler, but we live in North Carolina, it does not get that cold. Put a sweater on and grab a friend and go for a hike. Fresh air is proven to be good for your digestive system, improves blood pressure and heart rate, strengthens your immune system, cleans your lungs, and gives you more energy and a sharper mind. Overall, the more fresh air you get, the more oxygen you will breathe which will increase the amount of serotonin (the happy hormone) you inhale, consequently making you happier.
