Benefits of outdoor recreation

by Laura Posada on February 20, 2023

If we think about how our parents and grandparents used their leisure time, riding horses, walking, playing in the parks, we will realize that at that time people did outdoor recreational activities very frequently. There were not so many electronic entertainment media, nor the Internet, and the incidence of diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure was much lower. It's not a coincidence. Outdoor recreational physical activity provides many benefits for all aspects of a person's life, it offers quality of life.

Health benefits

It is already popularly known and scientifically proven that regular physical activity is essential to maintain optimal health. Exercise helps maintain low body mass indexes, regulate blood pressure, balance blood sugar levels, among others. Plus, being outdoors provides an added benefit. Inside our homes we are exposed to an infinity of electronic impulses from all the devices that surround us, even if they are turned off. When we are outdoors we can breathe fresh air, and free ourselves from those tensions. Another very important aspect is that recreational activities are an antidote to depression and stress.

Social benefits

You will necessarily have to come into contact with other people when you carry out activities outside your home. That helps you for many things: meeting new people and having the opportunity to cultivate friendships, distract yourself, chat, enjoy. Those same people can bring new experiences and ideas into your life, and open up a whole new world of opportunities for you, whether on a personal or professional level. If you are naturally shy, it will help you open up more, be more spontaneous and sociable, and ultimately enrich your life.

Benefits for the mind

If we want to be very concentrated and focused to deal with everything that has to do with our profession or our family life, for example, it is necessary that we give our mind a break regularly. You may be feeling overwhelmed by all the pending obligations and considering recreational activities last on your priority list. On the contrary, when the mind is rested and clear is when it works best. So take the time to dedicate it to yourself and have fun, since with that you will increase your productivity and efficiency at work and at home.

Benefits for family

These types of activities will help you create stronger connections and bonds with your family. Your children and partner will feel cared for and accompanied, you will be able to create memories together and that will definitely strengthen your family. It is important that you dedicate quality time to care for them and at the same time you can instill healthy habits in your children, such as exercise, sports, love of nature, and why not?... how important it is to have healthy fun.
