5 Reasons Why Sun Light Makes You Healthy

Sun light happens to be one of the greatest healing remedies that you can find in nature. The sun provides the energy that all living things need in order to exist on this earth.

When you take it in moderation, there are lots of health benefits of sunshine. If you hide away from the sun, you will not get those benefits.

Here are 5 reasons (that you might not have known) why the sun is actually healthy.

#1 – The ultraviolet rays in sunshine act as a natural antiseptic. These rays can kill viruses, bacteria, moulds, yeasts, fungi, and mites in air, water, and on different surfaces including your skin.

#2 – Getting some sun tends to help clear up different skin diseases such as acne, boils, athletes foot, diaper rash, psoriasis, and eczema.

#3 – Sunshine stimulates your appetite and improves your digestion, elimination, and metabolism.

#4 – Getting your daily dose of sunshine will enhance your immune system. It increases the number of white blood cells in your blood. It also helps them to be better fighters in their mission to destroy germs.

#5 – Sunshine encourages healthy circulation. It also stimulates the production of more red blood cells which increases the amount of oxygen in your blood.

So make a point of frequently getting out there to get short doses of golden sun.

Take frequent breaks to stretch your legs and breathe in some fresh air.

Go for walks

Play at the park with the kids

Go some gardening

You’ll get more vitamin D.

You’ll be moving more and sitting less.

You’ll be pumping fresh air into your lungs instead of the still, chemical-laden air of our sealed-up buildings.

You’ll enjoy the mental benefits of communing with nature and taking a break.

An average of 10 minutes of sunlight per day all year round will make sure that you reap the benefits of sunlight and make enough vitamin D and stay healthy.
