For the next eight days I would like to take the time to highlight individually each principle.
Principle #1 – Lots of fresh air!!!
Getting out for some fresh air daily can be a challenge at times but check out the many benefits you can enjoy by just taking a little time and doing this for yourself!
* Fresh air is good for digestion.
Fresh air helps you digest food more effectively. This is why it’s great to go outdoors for a small walk after you eat.
* Improves your blood pressure and heart rate.
If you have a problem with blood pressure, you should avoid polluted environments and try to stay in surroundings that have a good supply of fresh air. Dirty environment forces the body to work harder, to get the amount of oxygen it needs.
* It makes you happier
The amount of serotonin is affected by the amount of oxygen you inhale. Serotonin can significantly lighten your mood and promote a sense of happiness and well-being. Fresh air will leave you feeling more refreshed and relaxed.
* Strengthens your immune system.
White blood cells kill and fight bacteria and germs. They need enough oxygen to work and function properly.
* Fresh air cleans your lungs.
Fresh air helps the airways of your lungs to dilate more fully and improves the cleansing action of your lungs. When you exhale and breathe out through your lungs, you release airborne toxins from your body.
* You will have more energy and sharper mind.
Fresh air helps you to think better and increases your energy level. Your brain needs twenty percent of your body’s oxygen. More oxygen brings greater clarity to the brain, improves your concentration, helps you to think more clearly and has a positive effect on your energy level.
Here are just some of the many benefits of getting fresh air daily can do for your health, so take some time everyday and enjoy being outdoors.
