Sun Is Good For You

The sun finally came back to us. What a joy!

I find it so amazing how our attitude
can change with the weather.

As a matter of fact, not long ago, I was reading about
how the sun affects our mental health.

When you go out into the sun, your body produces
vitamin D and that in turn releases Serotonin.

As Serotonin is the brain chemical related to one person's
mood, it makes sense if you don't have enough of those little guys,
that you can become pretty depressed.

It goes withoug saying that the more sun you get,
the more vitamin D you get and the more Serotonin you get.

Therefore the happier you are when all
those elements come together for you.

Unfortunately, not all people are wired the same way.
Some people have more difficulty than others to produce Serotonin.
Those cases are very affected by the lack of sun.
That's why they sufffer from what is called" Sad" syndrome
during the short days of winter.

Many people who are affected that way will find
help by using a special Light Box which will give
them the same results as if they were sitting in the
sun without the harmful UV.

Now, get out there and SIT in that SUN!
Your brain will thank you for it.
