Did you know that Vitamin D is also referred to as the “sunshine vitamin”?
Did you also know that if you aren’t outside for 15 minutes every day – IN the sun – then you are probably deficient in this important vitamin? As humans we are unique because we are able to make our own vitamin D with adequate sun exposure. This vitamin is a critical component for absorbing and retaining calcium and phosphorus…both are necessary for building bone.
As I was reading about Vitamin D and what it does for us today – I noticed the sun was bright and shining. Time for a quick walk!
With Angel on her leash and my timer on my phone set for 15 minutes off we went into the sunshine. When the road turned and I looked ahead at the shady areas I simply turned around to stay in the sun and kept walking. With some uplifting tunes on my iPhone – it was just the break and energizing moment I needed.
Take time for yourself and get out in the sunshine! It’s good for your body and soul!
