Increase Vitamin D

Vitamin D is important for maintaining the overall health and well-being of our bodies,  It helps your body to absorb more of certain minerals including calcium and phosphorus and it is therefore essential for building and maintaining strong bones. Vitamin D can also help to regulate moods mental health, and much more. Your body requires sunlight to produce vitamin D but doesn’t require masses, even 5 to 15 minutes outdoors twice a week can be enough to generate all the vitamin D you need. The outdoor hot tub and lounge area are the perfect place to soak up all the sun you need. 

Relax and unwind

Taking time outdoors can help you to feel less anxious, and stressed. Exercise has been proven to help reduce anxiety, even more so when exercising outdoors. This is because sunlight helps increase serotonin levels which helps raise your energy and keep you in a positive mood. At Ellerton Hall even if the weather is preventing you from going outside our conservatory  surrounded by plants and nature can help make you unwind.  If you are looking to relax on your stay  you can book a relaxation package with love to pamper
