How a Vinyl Deck Can Boost Your Health
Get Fit and Healthy with Vinyl Decks this Year
The New Year is here and you might be looking forward to the rest of your year and wondering how you can incorporate healthier changes. Tuff Industries has found some compelling evidence why a vinyl deck could be the perfect solution to help you live healthier and happier.
Enhance Mental Health with a Vinyl Deck
Picture your vinyl deck with a few plants, a comfortable seating area, perhaps a water feature. Sound relaxing? That’s why a vinyl deck is a great solution to help enhance your mental health. Consider it an oasis where you can rest, relax, and recharge. Whether you can catch a few minutes before/after work or spend a few hours on the weekend, your vinyl deck can help you reduce anxiety, stress, and even lower your blood pressure for an overall more balanced outlook.
Embrace The Rays (Safely)
While you certainly don’t want to get *too* much sun, having a place where you can absorb some natural light is a key component in feeling great. This approach is especially important if the rest of your home doesn’t get a lot of light. Getting more natural light can help to improve your mood and provide you with a source of Vitamin D.
For a year-round option, consider installing a temporary or permanent roof so you can go out even when the weather isn’t cooperating. There are great options for translucent vinyl deck roofs that will still let the light in.
Get Physical on Your Vinyl Patio or Deck
Once you have a vinyl deck, you’ll have to spend a bit of time keeping it tidy: taking care of plants, sweeping off leaves, cushions, etc. Once you get moving, it’s easier to keep moving, which in turn helps to improve your body’s physique and offers a myriad of long-term benefits, including helping you live longer and better.
Additionally, if you want to improve your body inside-out, consider growing some herbs and vegetables. Home-grown produce is a great way to keep busy and enjoy all the benefits of healthy food.
Boost Your Brain
Spending time outside isn’t just good for your physical health and your mood, it’s also great for your brain’s long-term well-being. Being active and getting outdoors can help with long-term memory and cognitive function, improve recall and could be part of the solution towards preventing degenerative brain disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Even if you are interested in just a fraction of these health benefits, now is a great time to start planning to get your vinyl deck ready for spring, so you can enjoy everything it has to offer. However, if your deck is in a bit of disrepair, you might want to consider installing a new vinyl membrane for a fresh look. Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!
