Wellness Tip

Get More Your Natural Light


You know that quip about how we’re basically house plants with complicated emotions? It’s not so far off the mark! Like plants, we really do need water and sunlight to thrive.

But as much as we get bombarded with the “drink more water” advice, getting our dose of daily sunshine is often overlooked. Yet it’s important. Like, next-level-health-and-happiness kind of important.

Absorbing sunlight through your skin allows your body to create its own vitamin D. Natural light has also been shown to improve sleep, decrease stress, and ward off depression and seasonal affective disorder.

How to get more light? If possible, move your work desk close to a window. If you’re working from home, try removing curtains or blinds to maximize light.

And an extra trick? If you can’t spend a lot of time directly by a window, try adding mirrors to bounce the light around the room.

Of course, spending time outdoors – be it walking or simply drinking your morning coffee on the front porch – is always a good idea. Just remember that your best bet is to avoid times when the sun is at its strongest.

So think about how much natural light you’re currently getting – and if you need more, tweak your environment or your daily routine to let in a little more.
