I’m a summer girl. Maybe it’s because I was born in July but all I know is when May rolls around, I start anticipating the months of June, July and August with great enthusiasm. Summertime means warm weather, longer days, lots of sunlight and trips to the beach. And yes, even though I know I need to protect myself from the harmful rays of the sun, I love it when my skin starts to turn a golden hue after spending time outside. I like to say that I have been “kissed by the sun”.
All of us could use a little sunlight in our life. It just seems people look healthier when they’ve spent time outside and their skin has that summer glow to it. Spending time outside can also increase our Vitamin D levels to some degree. Of course, that’s along with making sure we eat a healthy, balanced diet!
My point is, if you’re sick then try to get outside for a while if you are physically able and experience the healing power of the sun. It’s both a mental and physical healing. Close your eyes, turn your face toward the sky and let your body be kissed by the sun. I promise it will make you smile.
