10 Reasons The Sun Is Good For You

Sunlight is important to all living things. The sun is the source of our planet’s energy – it nourishes our plants and warms the earth. It revitalizes human beings and gives us a reason to wake up every single day.

Unfortunately, most people today don’t get enough natural sunlight. Because our jobs and careers keep us indoors most of the day, we miss out on essential vitamins and minerals that keep us healthy and happy. Need a reason to go outside? Here are 10 reasons some time in the sun will improve your life:

    1. It lifts your mood

    When you’re feeling sullen and down, the sun can make a difference. Sunlight lifts your mood to a state of tranquility and radiance. Notice how your mood usually improves as the day progresses? That’s because the sun starts to rise and makes everything seem alright.

    Those that suffer from depression should make a habit of pulling back the curtains in the morning everyday and taking in some sunlight. I have suffered at the hands of depression and know how hard it can be to make it through every single day. However, I’ve learned that the sun plays a crucial role in my mood. If the sun is out, I usually feel much better than I normally would have if it weren’t. So, some days I step out in the sun and go out for a nice long walk, basking in its warmth and glory. It makes a world of difference to tell you the truth. Really does, I must say!

      2. It gives us Vitamin D

      Vitamin D is an essential part of our bodies. Luckily, you don’t have to take any vitamins to get your daily dose of it. Our greatest source of Vitamin D comes from our very own sun. So take it in, bask in it. All you need to do is embrace the warmth and glory of the sun’s rays to get your recommended dose of Vitamin D. Make sure you get an adequate amount to keep you going throughout the day. It will make you feel much better.

        3. It eases depression

        Studies show that the sun’s rays can actually alleviate depression. The sun has the capability of easing  depression, no matter how minimal or severe. Even those who are not affected by depression can benefit from the sun because it keeps you happier and fit. So, if you seem to be feeling the blues lately, try to spend some more time in the sun. You will feel much better, lighter, and stress-free! I know I surely do.

          4. It brightens your surroundings

          The light of the sun brightens everything in sight. It makes colors more vibrant and enriches our surroundings. Brightness is a gift of the sun. Embrace it.

            5. It makes things easier for us

            When the sun is out, doesn’t everything just seem easier? Work is easier to do and the day feels much more special, if I say so myself. After it rains, the sun warms up everyone and everything quite spectacularly. It’s incredible phenomenon to behold, I have to say. Everything is lighter and easier with the sun out on a bright day.

              6. It’s a great energy booster

              Your energy levels increase when the sun is out, which is something that statistics show and demonstrate as well. Just as the sun brings life to our planet, it recharges people as well.

              Next time you’re at the beach, take a look at the people around you. Are they happy? Excited? Moving around? It’s natural to feel energized when you are basking in the sun’s boundless energy. And with so much warmth coming from our sun, there is surely enough energy to go around for everyone.

                7. It livens the senses

                All of your senses awaken when the sun is out. You can see more clearly and breathe more deeply. The sun breathes life into our world and makes the air around us feels like its alive. It’s no wonder some people feel their best when they go outdoors.

                  8. It warms you up

                  Besides it’s wonderful psychological effects, staying warm is good for your body. It keeps circulation flowing through your body and its organs.

                    9. It helps keep internal balance and rhythm

                    Your internal balance is maintained in a rhythm that regulates your body. Our waking, eating, and sleeping patterns are a natural part of that cycle. The sun is a major factor in how our body determines what time of day it is, and what to do. When the sun is up, our body knows it’s time to get work done. Once the sun is down, our body knows its time to rest and relax.

                      10. It helps you feel good about yourself

                      The sun makes you feel plain old good. It’s as simple as that. And who doesn’t like to feel good about themselves?
