Exposure to sunlight can be damaging. This has become a known fact over the years because UV ray-related skin cancer is growing by the minute on earth.
Sun rays can cause dermatitis, melasma, skin cancer and even sunburn.
These are painful diseases and do hurt one person for a very long time, yet the sun is beneficial.
It is essential for one person to face the sun every single day because the body benefits from the warmth as well as the Vitamins emitted through the sun rays.
It should be mentioned that everything in moderation, even sun rays are imperative for one’s survival.
Now, one might wonder as to how the sun can benefit a person. It should be remembered that had sun been the bad guys, the human race would have been extinct by now, for at one point of time there weren’t much products or houses to keep a man safe from the sun’s rays.
How can the sun provide any kind of advantage to any living beings?
Well, let’s not forget the very process of photosynthesis, which gives us the oxygen to breathe in.If photosynthesis is not a satisfactory response, here are some of the reasons why everyone should face the sun at least every day for a little while:
The key to your happiness:
Sun emits chemical serotonin which instigates the mind to be happy. This is actually essential for people to have because the mind needs something to be cheerful about.
There are enough reasons for one not to feel satisfied in today’s world, thus, if the sun helps to keep one happy that opportunity should not be missed.Research has been conducted where people who have less exposure to sunlight, are depressed or less happy than the people who have daily exposure to sunlight.
Improve your bone health:
Although it might seem as unbelievable, sunlight helps the bone to stay healthy. Sunlight is the natural source of Vitamin D and every time you are exposed to sunlight, you are naturally helping your bones to remain active.
This is the reason why children are left to sunbathe post their morning showers so that they can readily absorb the sunlight and keep their bones happy and healthy. It seems like a futile task for most youngsters, but there is nothing better than natural absorption of the sunlight for a healthy life.
Control your blood pressure:
People are dependent on medicines these days to control their blood pressure.
There are so many issues that one might face because of the fluctuations in their blood pressure and might even end up relying on such medications to keep their blood pressure stable.
Only sunlight can be of significant help when it comes to blood pressure.
It is said that the nitric oxide produced during sunlight can lower blood pressure.
This does not mean that one should jump around in broad daylight to keep their blood pressure in check, as there is reverse effect as well. Blood pressure can drastically alter, with too much exposure to sunlight or if one is putting pressure on themselves while being exposed to sunlight.
Boosting your immunity system:
The production of white blood cells in the body is high when one is directly under sunlight. White blood cells help the body to build immunity and fight with the infections that might affect them.
It has been stated that due to sunlight, the body produces a significant amount of white blood cells, thus, making the body immune to most types of infection.
There are so many benefits of sunlight in our life. It is just that nothing should go overboard.
To remain healthy, even a little sunlight can go a long way.
Thus, stop hiding under the shades and try to get some sunlight for that will not hurt in the long run.
