For decades billions of us have been spending the majority of our time indoors. We work indoors, we live indoors, and we have access to home entertainment indoors. But at what cost?

While many of us aren't able to adapt this lifestyle, we should choose to spend a bit more time outdoors, and reap the rewards of doing so. Why? Well in a time where life is mostly lived inside four walls, a bit of sunshine and fresh air can do the world of good for both our physical and mental wellbeing. But what really happens to your body when you stop going outside?

Your mood might change

You may find it hard to wake up in the morning

You may start experiencing more aches and pains

Your gut might suffer

Cabin fever may start to set in

Your allergies might get worse

You may feel more stressed

Your risk of developing cancer may increase

Your memory might suffer

You may start to feel depressed

You might feel fatigued

Your risk of obesity and of developing other diseases increases

A child's vision may be affected

You might be exposed to more pollutants
