Benefits....of Sunlight

Sunlight

Prescribed dose:
Get out into the sunshine everyday for at least 20-30 minutes. Open curtains and blinds to let sunlight into your home.
 
Additional recommendations:
You need the sun's ultraviolet light for health, but be sensible when exposing yourself to the sun. The sun is hottest at noon, avoid going out into the sun when it's too hot. Lower your dietary fat intake.
