Sunshine is actually Good for You

Come outside and Enjoy some Again


Let's look at the True Facts. Sunshine has a favorable impact on our mood. We can influence our mood levels for good instead of spending so much time indoors. Those who get fresh air and sunshine are happy generally_ look at the home gardeners!

Excessive living in doors depletes Vitamin D levels that is a hormone needed for energy and muscle strength, making them work efficiently. Vitamin D also increases our Serotonin level

a neurotransmitter that gives us a happy disposition when adequately supplied.

So sunlight is an essential element for a happy disposition, missing in many people who live sedentary lifestyles or work many hours in high rise buildings etc It also sets the circadian rhythm that is nature's sleep/wake cycle within. When we have sunshine in the morning for instance, we sleep well at night.

A sleep chemical is released from our pineal gland called Melatonin. Yes, sunshine can keep levels of Serotonin and Melatonin from sinking and making us feel lethargic and listless.

Yes, it's Good for Flowers

and it's Good for You too!

Just like exercise helps us to stay off apathy, sunlight is good for us. There's so much misguided talk about Cancer as there is about Cholesterol. It's only over exposure to

sunshine that can lead to skin cancer in some people we hear so much about.

The Health Education system has gone weigh too far - in their efforts to bring something to our attention, they have over-addressed the issue, causing a kind of mass hysteria

shall I say? to the extent that most people don't avail themselves of much time in the sun any more. Children and all. I think that is so sad.


Dr Joseph Mercola, a Nutritionist and a leading Health Advocate states that Sunlight can Improve your Mental Health. He says, the association between darkness and depression is well known. Now a new study reveals the profound changes that light deprivation causes in your brain.

Neurons that produce norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin, which are common neurotransmitters involved in emotion, pleasure and cognition, were observed in the process of dying. This neuronal death may be the mechanism underlying the darkness-related blues of seasonal affective disorder.

The dark-induced effects may stem from a disruption of the body’s clock. When an organism’s circadian system is not receiving normal light, that in turn might lead to changes in brain systems that regulate mood. He is an excellent researcher and he has to do with various other researchers in specialized areas.
