THE POWER OF SUNLIGHT

Solaire of Astora

Have you ever been inside for a long time whether at home 0r at work and start to feel sad or depressed? But when you walk outside your mood instantly changes, well there is a reason for that.

Sunlight isn’t just good for our bones, it’s good for our well being and it is instrumental in helping prevent mood disorders like sadness, depression and anxiety.

The vitamin D you get from the sun acts as a mood stabilizer and releases pleasurable hormones in your brain. You see when you are exposed to sunlight your brain will produce a hormone called Serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused.

But when the sunlight is gone your brain will produce a hormone called Melatonin.  This hormone is responsible for helping you sleep and for maintaining your sleep-wake cycles. ( also referred to as your circadian rhythm)

This is why people in countries with less sunlight are more likely to be depressed. You see not enough sunlight and you get sad, too much however and you start to get a little crispy.

But Serotonin has other amazing effects for our body as well. Such as reducing the chance of developing certain types of cancer, including…

  • Colon cancer
  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • and Prostate cancer

The best part about all of this is that you only need a minimum of about 15 min of direct sunlight a day to literally and figuratively brighten up your world. PRAISE THE SUN!!!
