First Day of Summer – Benefits of Sunshine

June 21, 2023

Today marks the first day of summer, the longest day of the year.

As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, many people flock to the outdoors to soak up the sun. While it’s important to take precautions to avoid sunburn and skin damage, spending time in the sun can have numerous benefits.


One of the most well-known benefits of sunshine is the production of vitamin D in our bodies. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium, which is essential for strong bones and teeth. Sunlight also has been shown to improve mood and decrease the risk of depression.


In addition to its physical and mental benefits, sunshine can also improve sleep quality. Exposure to natural light during the day helps regulate our circadian rhythm, which can lead to better sleep at night.


During these hot summer months, it’s also important to make sure you’re getting the nutrition you need to keep you going. Snack right this summer with Sunshine Blend – the mix full of sunshine & brightness.

So, as we welcome the first day of summer, let’s remember to enjoy the sunshine in a responsible and safe way. Spend time outdoors, but don’t forget to wear sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. And remember, moderation is key – too much of a good thing can still have negative consequences.
