The sun is a vital part of everyone’s life and health! In fact, in the UK, the medical profession is so concerned that everyone who visits their GP is being given a leaflet advising them to take a Vitamin D supplement because we aren’t getting enough sunshine in general. There are certain benefits that can be gained from spending some time in the sun that far outweigh the danger of skin damage, especially if you pay attention and use the amount of SPF that you are supposed to! Here are five reasons why sunshine is essential for your health.
1. Mood and Focus Boost

Serotonin is the happiness hormone, so the more you can release in your body, the happier, more stable and more mentally focused you will be.
