Bad mood? Bitchy? Angry at the world?

Do you feel yourself thinking you are any of the above things? Quit it, happiness is in your near future.

There is an easy fix to your overall mood and it is a natural fix, no medications, only good old sunlight.

The sun is a powerful star at the center of the solar system. Not only is it to most important source for energy on earth, but it affects our state of being mentally, physically and emotionally. Imagine a rainy day that is dark and gloomy. Do you feel your best self on those days? With the lack of sun, there is a lack in the amount of seratonin the brain releases, which leads to a lethargic feeling.

Adding in a balance of sunlight into your day could trigger an instant mood boost to make you feel your best self. Outside exposure to the ultraviolent B radiation in the sun’s rays causes a persons skin to create vitamin D. Exposing yourself to vitamin D on a daily basis increases bone health and overall wellness.

So make the change! Get outside and go for a hike or a bike ride in the sun. Take a simple vacation to a naturally sunny place during winter to adjust back to your sunny self. Or, just open the window and let in the sunshine, every little bit helps (with sunscreen added) so implement new outside activities for a healthier future.
