Mental health is just as important as physical health! Spending time in the sun increases your serotonin levels, which in return can help lessen anxiety and depression. Suffering from insomnia? Serotonin is also known to contribute to a restful sleep at night. With all the added benefits of spending time in the sun, being outdoors will definitely boost your mood. Just don’t forget your sunscreen!
