As summer approaches we all look forward to basking in the sunshine again. As the days warm, we find ourselves outdoors more often enjoying the heat. The sun has so many positive effects on us, from mood enhancing to stress relief. First and foremost – Vitamin D! As we take our summer strolls our skin is taking in Vitamin D – as little as 15 minutes in the sun gives our body all the Vitamin D it needs to maintain healthy bone strength. It also improves our resistance against certain diseases – by regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and facilitating normal immune system function.

We all feel our moods improve and we have more energy as the gloom of winter retreats and we see the shimmering rays of the sun warming our days again. Believe it or not this is due to the increased levels of serotonin in the brain from sunlight.

We also see a decrease in depression associated with seasonal depression. Formerly known as Seasonal Affective Disorder – seasonal depression is triggered when those suffering from it, lack sunlight. Symptoms include anti-social behavior, bad moods, insomnia or hypersomnia. With all the stresses of life a lovely morning stroll in the sun can relieve stress and improve much needed sleep. Light exposure effects not only when we go to sleep but also the quality of sleep. Research shows that exposure to the sun allows people to sleep more deeply and soundly. The earlier in the morning people are exposed to bright sun the earlier they fall asleep. We need to protect our skin from overexposure to the sun which can cause heat rash, skin cancer and skin aging. There are so many benefits to using natural products to combat the negative effects of the sun’s rays.
