Keeping ourselves a healthy and active mind isn’t really easy nowadays when stress, depression, and burnout are widespread. But the good news is that we can get back on track even without spending money on pills – many times, our bodies already have all that they need – they just need a little “push”.

According to KotaTV.com, making room for some Vitamin D in your body is the right way of assuring mental well being. And once again, it’s not even mandatory to buy anything.

The sun can make us happier

Silver See, who is a marriage and family therapist supervisee with Rapid City Counseling, Inc, declared as quoted by KotaTV.com:

Well, everyone knows the sun can make us feel happier, but why?
The sun can help many factors, such as assisting our body to produce serotonin which helps us have a positive mood.

There you have it: a positive mood automatically means better results for our tasks, in most cases. Doing something while you feel joy increases the chances of success dramatically compared to the situation when you are forcing yourself to complete a task.

If you don’t like the idea of getting exposed to the sun for your body to produce as much Vitamin D as possible, you can consume the right foods that are good sources of the vitamin. Here’s what you should add to your menu for that manner, according to nhs.uk: liver, red meat, egg yolks, oily fish (sardines, salmon, mackerel, and herring), and fortified foods like breakfast cereals and fat spreads.

However, even though the sunlight can be beneficial, it also has its dark side: exposing yourself to it for too long can cause premature skin ageing and even skin cancer. Not to mention that getting too close to the sun onboard a spaceship would be an even terrible idea.
