The Importance of Getting Adequate Sunshine (Vitamin D)

Updated: Apr 28, 2018





Most of the ‘First World’ is Vitamin D deficient. Many people spend too much time indoors and don’t prioritize getting sunlight. Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to a whole number of diseases including cancer and Alzheimer’s—not to mention contributing to depression and anxiety.


By far the most efficient way to get Vitamin D is from our sun! My recommendation is to get yourself 20 minutes of direct sunlight every day that you can. Expose as much of your skin as you can. Do not wear sunscreen if possible (and if you do only use organic low SPF with no heavy metals or chemicals or preservatives). You will find your mood immediately lifting and a sense of calm. Remove your shoes and place your bare feet on the ground if possible to absorb the healing, antioxidant, and energizing negative ions of the Earth.


Happy sunbathing! ☀️
