Increases bone health
Keep a healthy weight
Exposure to the weather outside during winter increases calories burning compared to hot temperatures. It comes from a raised metabolic rate even at rest when the body is struggling to maintain warmth. Shivering raises the metabolism even more, leading to more weight loss.
Promotes creativity and focus
Getting into the outdoor space helps increase creativity and focus. A study indicated that kids with ADHD who spend time in the natural environment increased focused twice more than in town and cities. Therefore, go out and make frozen bubbles or engage in snowflake math and motor fun.
Reduces depressive symptoms
