The Amazing Benefits Of The Sun
Sunshine is the Best Medicine
This message is so important to me, I just had to write about it! The Sun has been such a powerful influence on my well-being.
The Sun is my love – literally. I can’t live without its energy, heat, and soothing effects.
The Sun sustains me mentally and physically: it restores my soul and brings me warmth and comfort. In this way, it cares for me by sharing everything it is.
But I’m not the only one that can have this kind of genuine love for the Sun…you can too, provided you understand the benefits our Sun provides : )
The Vitamin D Connection
One sunbath a day keeps the doctor away! For a glowing, healthy looking skin, no one can deny its revitalizing effects– especially not women. Inside and out, the Sun will make you feel radiant.
UVB (present in every ray of sunshine), helps the body synthesize vitamin D, which is essential for good health. It has the ability to improve the skin’s elasticity, restore its youth, and protect it.
Many people suffer from vitamin D deficiencies, which can easily be remedied by regular sunbathing.
Vitamin D is vital for the proper development of bones and teeth, plays a key role in cell development, and fortifies the immune system- all of which reduces the incidence getting a whole host of diseases…even cancer.
It actually influences over 200 genes!
The Natural Rhythm of Life
Did you know that sunlight also stimulates the secretion of melatonin? This hormone has a direct impact on the quality of your sleep. Hence, it improves the rhythm of your life and your psychological balance.
How is this possible?
Light affects the level of melatonin in your system– decreasing it by day and increasing it by night. The daylight will enable you to be active and motivated, and then after dusk have a good night’s sleep.
Endorphin levels also rise and fall with the Sun. These are natural antidepressants, and are responsible for happiness and pleasure. Thus they will lift your spirit and calm anxieties.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), is a common mood disorder which can result from a lack of sunlight. This mostly occurs during the winter, when there are fewer hours of daylight…and is linked to the rise and fall of melatonin and endorphins secreted.
The Sun Deserves our Gratitude!
Despite the fact that the earth revolves around the sun, it’s one of those things we take for granted- and one of those things we are never quite grateful enough for.
In my opinion, it is one of the best assets for a healthy life. Taking advantage of it demands no effort and is completely free.
Abundance is the word that best describes the Sun.
What about you? What’s your relationship to the sun???
