New research suggests that being outdoors reduces your heart rate and blood pressure, lowers stress hormones, and eases muscle tension. It can even boost your mood. So eating outdoors most definitely has its benefits!
Outdoor dining, al fresco – call it what you will, it certainly has appeal. Most of us spend our week under a roof. It’s great to get outside with good food, perhaps some good wine and certainly family and friends.
Whether you go open air or roofed will depend on your climate. If you have a view that’s to-die for, take full advantage of it. It doesn’t have to be grand, though. You can simply set up a table and then you’re good to go.
Worried about the bugs? Citronella – natural and effective 🙂
