Sunshine in winter time, a perfect Saturday

Hans Christian Andersen wrote the following quote:

Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Today it is a beautiful sunny day. Even if the winter is still in his kingdom with temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius, today we can recharge from the warm sunlight. A day like this can recharge your “batteries” for the cloudy and cold days to come. For me this is a perfect Saturday to enjoy with my loved ones.

The highlight of the day today for me is : The SUN. Sunlight in winter

It is well known that the light from the sun brings happiness, you can feel that you are happy when the sun shines. You feel recharged and powerful, ready to  conquer the world.

When it is a sunny day I like to sit still with the face to the sun and recharge with fresh energy for a few moments.

I have found browsing online also a lot of benefits that scientists discovered are related to the sunlight, benefits brought by the sun to he human body.

Below you can find a few of them:

Sunshine boosts levels of serotonin – the body’s natural “happy hormone”, That is why humans tend to feel happier and more energetic when the sun shines.

Vitamin D is produced by our body when the sun shines, vitamin D is a real help to our bones and body construction because with the help of vitamin D we are able to assimilate calcium, keep our bones healthy, and for protecting against serious chronic diseases later in life.

Recent studies have shown that the sunlight r educes heart disease, prevents diabetes and also can prevent cavities (yes it is true). The benefits of sunlight do not stop here, it  relieves aches and pains (probably even more effective than drugs) it also boosts fertility for both men and women and  boosts your immune system.

But like all things in life, moderation is the key, never stay too much under the direct sunlight (especially in the summer when the level of UV radiation is high), take care of your skin and do not burn it . NEVER overdo the sun – burning and excessive exposure will increase your risk of skin cancer

 

Stay safe and enjoy the sun like I do : with moderation!

 

Have a beautiful sunny day!
