Getting natural sunlight on a regular basis can offer many healthy benefits. You can help your body absorb some of these benefits by simply pulling open the drapes or blinds in your living room window,.
Boosts vitamin D
When exposed to sunlight, the skin absorbs vitamin D, a critical nutrient that prevents bone loss and reduces the risk of heart disease, weight gain, and various cancers. This is true whether you get your sunlight indoors or outside.
Helps defeats depression
It has been proven that getting plenty of natural light can help elevate your mood and lessen mood swings.
Since mental health and sleep often go hand in hand, it’s not surprising that natural light affects how you rest at night. The more daylight you get, chances are good you will get a better night’s sleep.
Allow the benefits of natural sun light to fill your day with sunshine and make your nights more pleasant by spending a little time outside each day. But be precautious. If you are planning to be outside, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and prevent sun burn with appropriate clothing.
