Learn to love the great outdoors

Fresh air and sunshine don’t cost a thing, so get outside and enjoy both as often as possible - spending time outdoors is good for your body and your mind. Allow nature to inspire you and improve your well-being and make a promise to yourself to rediscover the simple things in life.

Good for Kids.

Long before the days of computers and all things tech related kids used to entertain themselves by riding bikes and climbing trees. Fresh air and sunshine isn’t just nice for kids, it’s also essential. A lack of exposure to sunlight could lead to your child developing Myopia (near-sightedness - caused by elongation of the eyeball). There has also been an increase in childhood obesity, which, in part has been attributed to a lack of exercise and activity. Try and encourage your child to go outdoors more - invest in some play equipment for the garden – a swing, slide etc. But if you can’t stretch to that you can still have fun with your child. Kick a ball or explore your local park, get out and enjoy what the great outdoors has to offer.

Give your kids a comfy and bright seat of their own outdoors, check out the Acapulco Kids Chair by VOGA. Inspired by Cecilia Leon Dela Barra, the Acapulco comes in a range of colours (and comes in adult size too).

Good for Adults.

Sunshine and fresh air boosts your mental and physical health. Walking is free – you can amble, stroll, or (if you’re feeling energetic) go for a power-walk. You will be getting a dose of exercise and its proven that walking in the fresh air can be calming and help you to focus. Being on the move is great, but sometimes you might just want to relax and take it easy and enjoy the garden.

Eat your breakfast outside or make yourself an afternoon cup of tea and head outdoors to enjoy it. Smell the flowers, enjoy the blue of the sky and feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Nature is underrated and it’s not until we stop and take a moment that we realise how wonderful the world around us actually is.  

Make your outdoor space as inviting as possible by investing in attractive outdoor furniture. Go for manicured lawns, well-stocked flower beds, and hardy but attractive shrubs. If you feel at home in your garden you are more likely to want to spend time outside.

Take a look at the Diamond Chair by VOGA. Inspired by Harry Bertoia, the chair has a sculptural wire rod frame and black Italian leather seat.  It can be used outdoors (with proper care).
