Breathing Indoor vs. Outdoor: Is There a Difference?

Did you know we take an average of 17,000-30,000 breaths per day? And that’s if you are always at rest. When you work out or walk around the house, school, or at work, that number goes up. Breathing is one of those things our brain does automatically. We never really pay much attention to it.

At GR8NESS, we’d never leave you with such a complex dilemma, which is why our designers created this easy-to-follow infographic to help you understand the question at hand.

Breathing Is Automatic

Since we don’t pay much attention to breathing, we pay even less attention to where we’re breathing. Indoor versus outdoor breathing feels like the same for many of us. After all, we’re just letting our bodies run on automatic, not thinking much about what we’re doing anyway.

Indoor vs. Outdoors

However, there is a vast difference between breathing indoor versus outdoor. We’ve heard about the benefits of breathing fresh air before, but what about air pollution?

When greenhouse emissions threaten our fresh air, wouldn’t indoor air be the go-to option? The truth is not that simple, and while there’s a difference between breathing indoor versus outdoor, it appears we have to find a balance in between.
