Get Outside, It's Good for Your Health

Fall might be our favorite season here at MEALS THAT TRANSFORM. Of course, we can find something great about every time of year, but it's hard to argue with a hike or neighborhood walk in the crisp mountain air and among the fall colors. Did you know that there are actually significant health benefits to getting outside?

It's true: scientists are finding that nature has a positive impact on our well-being. Studies have shown that time outside can increase cognitive function, short-term memory, mental energy, and problem-solving skills and decrease stress. Nature is therapeutic based on the literal impact it has on our brains, and it doesn't take much to experience these effects. 

So instead of popping a pill or curling up in front of the TV, lace up your shoes and go outside. Start with a walk around the block or a spin through your local park, and work your way up to a weekend hike. Even sitting quietly in your backyard will work! You don't need to live in the woods to experience the benefits of fresh air. Ask your family and friends to join you if you need support. After all, we know that connection is a great way to stay committed. 

Of course, we're always here to support you with fresh, organic meals delivered to your door, which makes for great fuel for your active lifestyle. Happy fall!
