Living in the country usually results in life moving at slower and more relaxed pace compared to big cities in the United States. Many people prefer living in suburban or rural areas just to get away from the hustle and bustle.
However, people that choose to live within country landscape tend to lead healthier lives.
Nature is an important part of maintaining good health. When you spend time in the outdoors, you can build a healthy, strong immune system for yourself by exposing your body to bacteria that lives in your environment. When you have a healthy inner microbiome, your body can fight off disease faster.
Spending time outdoors can also help to keep your heart rate low, which can in turn reduce your blood pressure, muscle tension and stress hormone production. When all of these things are happening at once, you’ll likely experience healthier blood pressures as well as an improved over all well-being.
Many Americans are deficient in Vitamin D, but you’ll get your fair share of sunshine when you live in the country; simply walking to the mailbox can give you a dose.
In addition to all the benefits your body will enjoy by simply being in the country, you’ll also have an easier time eating healthy with local produce more readily available. Locally sourced meat, eggs and cheese have fewer preservatives because they don’t have to travel long distances to make it to your supermarket.
