Getting Out and About this Easter Bank Holiday
With the weather forecast for glorious sunshine this Easter bank holiday, it sounds like a fantastic opportunity to get out and about, enjoy the weather and spend time with the family.
Why is it good to get outside?
Fresh air and sunshine are good for the mind and body and what better time to get out than during the spring Easter celebrations.
It is scientifically proven that getting outdoors in the sunshine and fresh air will boost your physical health. Not only are you getting exercise, simulating the blood flow and working your muscles, you are also receiving your daily dose of vitamin D which boosts your immune system. Natural sunlight also helps relieve pain.
As well as helping your physical health, going outside also boosts your mental health. You will find that if you spend time outdoors your stress levels will decrease. Spending time in the sunshine and fresh air is sure to boost your mood!
The great thing about the great outdoors is that there is a lot of space. If you have a big family you might not want them to pile into your house every time they visit. To create memories and give the kids room to run around opt for an outdoor adventure.
If you go for a day out that includes visiting a monument, you’re sure to get some cultural enrichment out of your outing. Experiencing history and culture is more engaging and rewarding than watching it on the tv indoors.
