The health benefits of a garden office

The recent global pandemic has forced everyone to look more inwardly at themselves, lifestyles and their physical health. It has also forced more people to work from home for longer periods than ever before and certain positives of this have come to light. With it looking likely to be a much more permanent arrangement for many, even if its only a few days a week, more and more people are looking to create a proper office environment at home.

One of the best ways of achieving this is with a garden office. It may sound like a large investment, or a huge investment in terms of time, effort and money, but nothing could be further from the truth with a Chatsworth Home Pod. These structures can be the perfect solution for your professional needs and will sit comfortably in a variety of outdoor spaces. Not only will they be great for your productivity, you can also expect some health benefits to come with one too. Read on to find out more…

No commute

Sitting in a car for extended periods of time or battling public transport can lead to both physical and mental health disruptions. The anxiety of traffic, inhaling the toxic exhaust fumes on the highways plus the uncomfortable seated position of driving is one negative, not to mention the wasted time. Public transport is often a hotbed for germs to breed thanks to the overcrowding. Plus let’s not forget how unreliable it can be, the cramped conditions and again, the wasted time can all leave you feeling under the weather and mentally strained or drained. Walking across your own property to start your day means that all your energy can go into work and you’ll have extra time for some physical self-care too.

Work life balance

Of course, having no significant commute will automatically improve your work life balance, unless of course it means that you end up spending more time physically working! Not only that, the ability to be more flexible throughout the day can really help improve your overall lifestyle. From being able to make a healthier lunch in your won home, to taking a quick break to accomplish a chore that might need doing or even being able to nip to the doctor’s if there is something that needs addressing.

A private environment

There is a lot to be said for having a space where you can really focus on your work and the tasks you need to complete. It will give the freedom to have any private conversations required and enable you to set everything up in a way that suits you which will help mindset and productivity immensely. Also, having the ability to just close the door and step away from work at the end of the day is very valuable as it will help prevent thoughts taking over your private life time too.

Natural light

The health benefits of sunlight are not as widely known as they should be. Whilst possible to get some in a traditional office environment, it would of course be much easier in a garden office with large windows. Sunlight works as a mood booster but it will also allow the body to create vitamin D which is essential for maintaining healthy bones. Not only that but exposure to natural light will also help to regulate your natural sleep pattern known as your circadian rhythm.

Fresh air

There are many benefits to getting plenty of fresh air which are not widely known about. They include getting a boost to your digestive system, improvement in blood pressure and heart rate, it cleans your lungs and also strengthens your immune system. A lot of fresh air will help boost your energy and your mood too so really, the benefits can be significant and fundamental to a healthier life.

A garden office can be the perfect solution for your working needs, your work life balance and can help you be healthier too. So if you’re considering one, get in touch with us at Home and Garden Offices on 0114 419 1974 and we’ll be happy to discuss what is right for you.
