Season of Vacations

You can do amazing things like hike, watch the sunset on a beach or have a great day in a park. Research shows that taking a break from everyday life is great for a healthy mind. Going on a vacation will boost up your mood, improve focus and reduce depression and stress, so pay a visit to your favorite country this summer.

Season of Good Mood and Better Sleep

Yes, summer is the season of good mood and better sleep.  Insomnia can be cured by simply basking in the sun. Health experts recommend exposure to sunlight between 7 am to 9 am each morning as the sunlight helps the body’s biological clock to reset itself. Sunlight also makes us feel good, it helps to improve our mood and make us feel energetic.

Many people suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) during the winter months because of long dark nights. The reduced level of sunlight causes depression and disrupts the body’s internal biological clock. Thus, it is quite important to spend some time in the sun.

Staying outdoor in the sun has a lot of physical and mental benefits. Such as staying in sun for only 10 minutes is enough to receive a daily dose of Vitamin D while staying under the sun for 30 minutes could reduce the risk of depression and high blood pressure.

Season to Stay Outdoor

If you are one of those people who love to go to parks, beaches, or hiking then the summer season must be your favorite season. Staying indoors all the time in winter is quite challenging for everyone and hence when summer comes it feels like life is back. You can enjoy outdoor activities like jogging, sunbathing and have a picnic in the park. This season is also a favorite of fashion fanatics who can enjoy wearing short and lovely dresses in the streets.
