Spending a Little Time in the Sun May Have a Few Health Benefits!

How Sunshine Can Improve Your Health

Check out these health benefits of sunshine.

Spending time outside by the pool can give you some much-needed rest and relaxation. With health concerns about the sun, it may not be as appealing as it used to be but that doesn’t mean you should avoid the sun altogether. While you should be mindful of the sun, a healthy dose of sunshine isn’t all bad. Check out these ways that a little sun can benefit your health.

Vitamin D. 

Spending time out in the sun can help your body to produce a healthy dose of vitamin D. This increase in vitamin D helps to promote bone health. The vitamin helps your body better absorb calcium and phosphorus, which are two main components of our bones. More sunlight means more vitamin D, which helps to keep your bones healthy.


Sunlight helps to boost your levels of serotonin, which helps to boost your mood. While it’s not a cure for depression, a case of the blues could be eased by a little sun exposure. In fact, when you spend too much time inside, especially during the winter months when there’s less sunlight, you may be affected by seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Get a bit more sunlight to help feel a little calmer and more positive.

Enjoy spending time by your pool for a few added health benefits. Just remember to always wear sun protection when spending time outside. Lather up in sunscreen and wear your sunglasses.
