May is Clean Air Month! We love everything fresh, including fruits, vegetables and of course, the air we breathe. To celebrate Clean Air Month, we wanted to share some fresh air tips and resources with you. Planning activities outside in the fresh air (hurry before it gets too hot out there!), is a great way to bring the family together for some bonding. It’s a perfect opportunity to initiate a conversation about how to keep the air clean and also the importance of keeping your lungs airy and smoke-free.
First, here are three simple fresh air tips:
Tip 1: Take a walk.
Go for a short walk after you eat. Not only will the mild exercise help you to digest your food, you will also benefit from breathing fresh air.
Tip 2: Go outside for 30 minutes.
If your mind is feeling sluggish, consider sitting outside for 30 minutes and breathing in some fresh air. Fresh oxygen helps your brain to function at its best.
Tip 3: Visit a park.
Take the whole family along for a weekend activity and visit a park for fresh air. You can also go to a beach or a forest if you don’t live near a city for the same fresh air benefits.
