Fresh air is an amazing healer. You know when it's been winter for seemingly forever and finally, it's a nice enough day that you can open the windows? Is that not the most refreshing feeling in the world? You breathe more deeply, your whole insides feel "fresher." There is a reason for this. According to Dr. Bernell Baldwin, science editor of The Journal of Health and Healing, "Fresh air is chemically different than the recirculated indoor air that most Americans breathe. The life-giving oxygen molecule is negatively charged ... which gives rise to a number of benefits ... including protection against some of the physical changes linked to anxiety." Whenever your mind feels as though it needs to be cleared out, head outside for a brief walk; your kids will benefit as well. If you would prefer to simply relax alone, sit outside on a porch or in a porch swing in the evening.
