It’s time to
get out and chill! Get your rays, get your Vitamin D!
It’s summer and
it’s time to get out there and enjoy the sun.
on a warm and sunny day and relaxing is instinctive. It’s something that we
don’t have to be told to do; unlike exercising and eating healthily.
We go out into
the sun, because it makes us feel good. It gives us that all important Vitamin
D which maintains healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a
protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such as cancer. Some
studies also say that Vitamin D helps improve mental health and wellness.
The sun also
makes us feel warm and contributes to our wellness, which can be a rare bonus
if you live in a country that offers a lot of rain, wind, chill and occasional
snow. (Not England, surely!)
However, we all
know about the dangers of being in the sun. Sunscreen is important, but so is
also choosing the right product. There are a lot of brands out there that offer
different protection, and it is important to look for the product that suits
you. Think about what you need to protect you from burns, what will protect you
from long-term exposure, and what factor you actually need. Slather on too much
and you might reduce or block the skin’s ability to soak up Vitamin D.
forget that while you are in the shade you are still getting the benefits of
the sun. Wearing a hat in the middle of day is not a bad idea either.
you’ve understood how you best can enjoy the sun in a safe way, there is
nothing like kicking off your shoes and enjoying the rays. And while you’re
relaxing in the sun, why not read up on how to
maximise your intake of Vitamin D and improve your health throughout the year.
Make the most
of it while it lasts!
