The Importance of Outdoor Fun During the Summer Months
The summer months provide a wonderful time to head outdoors
and enjoy the beauty of nature with the rest of your family. The leaves become
a brilliant green, the sky is a silky blue above your heads, the clouds
roll by offering shade from the light as they creative shapes that can be determined
with a creative eye. Overall, heading outside during the months of summer can
be a blast for everyone, young and old.
But in addition to being fun, going outdoors during the
summer can also be extremely healthy, especially for your little ones. In fact,
there are many benefits of going outside in the summer of which you should take
advantage before the weather cools down again.
Soaking Up the Sun
Over the years, sun exposure has developed an extremely bad
reputation due to its connection with cancer and the overall destruction of the
skin. But while excessive sun exposure can lead to danger, moderate exposure,
especially when the sun is not at its zenith (directly overhead), may provide a
host of benefits that are only available in this method. Studies have shown
that the most effective way of receiving vitamin D is through exposure to the
sun; this, in turn, can help promote bone growth, absorb calcium in the body,
fight off heart disease, and aid in numerous other functions. Higher
levels of vitamin D may also help prevent or mitigate mood disorders, showing
that sun exposure may help keep your children’s emotions balanced and healthy.
Back to Nature
In our modern era, technology is king. Kids grow up tapping
away on tablets, playing on smartphones, and typing on computers and laptops
with ease. Time spent inside is often tied up with technology, and time spent
outside may be in front of a miniature screen, or even thinking about what
games are available after going back indoors.
This is largely due to our society’s dependence on
technology, which has helped civilizations advance in extremely positive ways.
That being said, a reliance on technology should never be cause to eschew the
natural world that still surrounds us each day. The natural wonders of the
world will always exist hopefully, and, as such, it is important to help your
children become comfortable with the outside world at an early age. By heading
outdoors and going on nature walks or hikes, or even digging in the backyard, you
are affording your kids the chance to experience a world far away from screen
and keypads, and one that offers interactive and rewarding activities.
Hop on Into this Summer
This summer, get ready to have a blast outdoors with the
kids you love. And for some extra fun, head to the online store and bring home
the Pogo Hop for your little ones today.
