Health Benefits of Fresh Air

fresh air benefits

For the last few months, I have been embarking on an exercise routine. This routine is nothing rigorous, but it is enough to stay healthy and physically active. Want to know what I’ve noticed during this process? Nothing is more pleasant than a big breath of fresh air. Water of course is essential, and so is stretching beforehand, but a big breath of fresh air on a sunny, spring day? Yes, please! You see, each one of our cells needs a constant supply of oxygen in order to live. So what are some of the benefits of fresh air?

It’s good for your digestive system

Have you heard anyone say that you should take a brisk walk after you eat? Fresh air helps you digest food more effectively. This is one of the best kept secrets when it comes to losing weight.

It improves your heart rate and blood pressure

If you are experiencing problems with blood pressure, try your best to avoid polluted environments by staying in surroundings that have a steady supply of fresh air. A dirty environment forces your body to work harder to get the amount of oxygen it requires.

It cleans your lungs

Fresh air improves the cleansing action of your lungs and helps your airways to dilate more fully. Every time you exhale through your lungs, you release airborne toxins from your body. Conversely, dirty air clogs your lungs with harmful airborne toxins which can lead to respiratory illnesses over time.

Fresh Air makes you happy

Serotonin can lighten your mood and promote a feeling of well-being and happiness. Few people know that the amount of serotonin is affected by the amount of oxygen you breathe in through your lungs. Fresh air leaves you feeling more relaxed and refreshed. Who couldn’t use that?

My whole point in writing this blog is to say that everyone needs to breathe in more fresh air. Unfortunately, many live in areas where air pollution chokes the “freshness” out of what you’re breathing. Before you know it, your lungs are covered in filth. That’s not a pleasant image, but fresh air can be a reality in our lives, and it all starts in the home.


Regularly changing your home air filters is perhaps most important for greater home air quality. Furnace filters improve indoor air quality by removing the airborne contaminants that lessens air quality (such as pollen and dust mites). An air filter is a simple (yet undervalued) home appliance that can provide benefits to your respiratory health that you wouldn’t believe. I’ll put it to you this way: your health will be a lot better off with an air filter than without one. Browse through our complete collection of furnace filters, find your size and place your order. This is one of the most important steps for fresh indoor air.

What are some other ways for fresh air? An air purifier is a smart option, along with improving the ventilation in your home (open your windows regularly and avoid stuffy rooms). When you’re outside, try to avoid car exhaust and high polluted areas. Fresh air is just what the doctor ordered.
