I think a lot of people need to get out in the sun more often. And there are a lot of benefits to playing in the sun such as producing Vitamin D for healthy bones, lifting up your mood and having lower blood cholesterol, lowering blood sugar levels, lowers blood pressure, improved immune system thus keeping you from coming down with autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cancer, MS, arthritis, flues and colds. Plus sunlight is also good for your cardiovascular system, for helping you boost your metabolism and thus losing weight. Plus being in the sun helps your kidneys work better to get rid of toxins and your liver starts working better too… and you start to digest better. And sunlight is good for eczema and acne and it’s very important for the pineal gland in your brain… which is important for feeling up beat and alive, reduces stress and anxiety. I believe you need to be out in the sun at least one hour a day.
