Think Cozy and Enjoy the Healthy Cooler Weather.

Getting outside in the fresh air even in cooler weather is always a good thing. In fact, there are actual health benefits to spending time outdoors during the cool fall and eventually downright cold winter. 

One of the first things we notice when the season changes from summer to fall is that insects start disappearing. So, as the mosquitos vanish from our sight, we can rest our minds from concerns about contracting West Nile or Zika viruses from the little pests. 

Another natural advantage of cooler temperatures is that when we are exposed to the cold, our body’s metabolism can increase by as much as 80 percent according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, which was also reported by the New York Times. This means that excess brown fat stored in the body can actually burn white fat to generate body heat. Cold temperatures can also make us want to increase our activity, and a surge in body motion may have a snowball effect so to speak because body activity releases endorphins to give us an emotional boost. Since all the systems of our body are linked, when we feel good, our mental clarity also gets a boost. 

To enhance your outdoor experiences in cooler weather, Athena Outdoor Design is happy to offer a wide variety of gas and wood fire pits for some warmth and ambiance. We love our fire pits because they just help make everyone feel cozy. We even have an outdoor, wood burning fireplace that will look amazing in your outdoor room. 

While we are thinking about being cozy, imagine a cold evening or perhaps a cold winter afternoon spent relaxing in your own six-person heated spa pool. We have two affordable options available for your outdoor room, and each comes with a cover. We guarantee your friends and family will show up for all your outdoor cool weather parties when they hear you have a heated spa pool. 

Plan to enjoy the great outdoors even when it is cold outside this winter because it just may give your health and your mood a welcome boost. When you are done enjoying your backyard room and the rain or snow begins to fall, at Athena Outdoor Design, we offer affordable and durable outdoor furniture covers that protect and are moisture resistant. There are several sizes to accommodate your various pieces from the table and chair sets to sofas. If you take good care of your outdoor furniture and accessories, you will enjoy them through any season and for many years to come.
