Health Benefits of a Sunroom
Many people are surprised to learn that sunrooms have many health benefits. Now, sunrooms themselves are not healthy for humans, of course. But the amount of natural sunlight that can pour in through their many windows is what gives humans an extra dose of health. Here’s how sunrooms can benefit your health:
Lowered Blood Pressure — In 2013, a study was done at the Universities of Edinburgh and Southampton that showed those with increased sun exposure had lower blood pressure, lowering the risk of stroke and heart attack. Throughout the study, participants were exposed to UVA light, which is the type of light one would be exposed to in a sunroom.
Boost Mood — Sunlight has an extreme effect on your mood, including your levels of endorphins, serotonin, and nitric oxide. These chemicals and hormones can be released into our bodies as a response to sunlight, helping improve and boost your mood.
Get Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D — Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is an essential part of life, and without it, humans can become very sick and pose serious health risks. Vitamin D offers many benefits to our bodies, like fighting off disease, strengthening the immune system, reducing depression, and aiding in weight loss. Sure, you can get your suggested daily value from food and supplements, but the best way to get your daily dose is by safely being in the sun — aka, being in your sunroom.
Perfect Place for Plants — Sunrooms are an ideal place for your indoor plants. Plants are also known to boost mood and improve health. Indoor plants also have the ability to clean air and improve its quality and reduce stress.
Anti-Stress Room — A sunroom is a perfect place to do any of your favorite stress-reducing activities, such as working out, yoga or meditation, crafting, reading, or watching your favorite show. You can also grow an indoor garden and nourish both your body and your mind.
