Hint 1: Better Sleep Quality

Our circadian rhythms are naturally linked to the sun’s schedule. Spending too much time indoors can greatly affect our natural rhythms and can be harmful to our sleep patterns. On the flip side, more time spent outdoors, especially in the morning, can improve our sleep.

Looking for ways to add outdoor time to your day? Read the paper on your patio, play fetch with your dog, take a stroll around your landscape, or just enjoy the birds chirping!

Hint 2: The sun keeps your bones healthy.

That's because your body produces vitamin D when exposed to the sun. The so-called "sunshine vitamin" helps the body absorb
calcium, which is essential for bone health.

Vitamin D is found in fatty fish like salmon and in fortified dairy products, but it's also naturally produced when the sun shines on skin, triggering a reaction that makes vitamin D from cholesterol.
