Additionally, it helps us produce more melatonin (the sleep hormone) in the evening if we have been outside during the day. Sunlight and daylight also stimulate the production of serotonin in the skin, which has a positive effect on our mood.
In addition to these physiological benefits, exercising outdoors also aids relaxation. Encountering nature along the way enhances the relaxation even further. Moreover, outdoor exercise is more addictive and motivating than exercising in a gym. Furthermore, exercising in colder temperatures burns more body fat.
