How a Sunroom can Benefit your Health




It is never too late to add a sunroom to your backyard or patio space. It is a common misconception that sunrooms are only useful during the summer, but we greatly disagree. Four Seasons Sunrooms is an all-season room and is great all-year round, offering access to nature and all the benefits the sun has to offer.

Protect your Skin and Gain Vitamin D
Everyone is so nervous to be out in the sun for too long because of the effects the UV rays have on your body and skin. UV rays are extremely dangerous for your skin and can lead to cancer. By adding a sunroom to your backyard or patio space you still will get the direct sunlight you are looking for, but with the comfort of knowing you and your family are safe. This is a benefit that will be great for the summer months and into early fall, when the sun is at it’s harshest. Having a sunroom also provides people with access to Vitamin D. Lack of this nutrient causes your muscles to become weak. With access to a Four Seasons Sunroom, you can gain safe access to the sun and obtain the vitamin D your body craves.

Finding your Happy Place
With a 360-degree view, it is proven that sunrooms are a stress-reducing outlet for many. Providing a very relaxing and calming environment, a sunroom allows you to walk away from whatever is going on in your life and escape to your sunroom for relaxation, meditation and tranquility. With that being said, sunrooms also help with depression. People with depression often have little to no interest in daily activities, and often times find themselves trapped inside their homes with little to no access to the outside world. Having a sunroom allows them to remove themselves from their bedroom and go to a place that might induce happier thoughts, access to nature, the sun, and more.


Kick Start your Sleep
Sleep Deprivation is another health issue a lot of Americans face. Our body tells us when it is time to wake up and when to go to sleep. Essentially, our body is equipped with it’s our own 24-hour clock. Sometimes people face issues when it comes to sleeping, often having trouble falling asleep, keeping them awake for hours beyond what they would have hoped. This can be debilitating to a normal lifestyle, especially when one must wake up early for work or school. Not receiving enough sleep can affect their work and might cause them to perform poorly. A sunroom exposes you to natural light has a significant impact on mental health, which will also help you reset your biological clock and a natural sleeping habit.

Sunrooms have tons of benefits to make your way of life better and despite misconceptions, sunrooms are not just for summer. At Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows we would like to help find the best sunroom for you. Contact us today for your free no obligation consultation!
