Oy, I’m tired of winter. I need a little sunshine and fresh air that doesn’t hurt to breathe in. I brought up my feeling of missing the sun with a few friends and I was surprised that 2 of them said they would rather remain inside, even during warmer weather. What? They believed that the sun could be so damaging that it wasn’t worth the risk. What?
Helen Keller was blind and even she spoke about the benefits of the big happy light in the sky. In fact, there are even medical reasons TO go out in the sun.
Did you know that the sun was used to treat several skin disorders as well as having a benefit to strengthening the skins ability to be a barrier against germs and disease?
Did you know that before antibiotics it was the treatment for tuberculosis, and it’s still used to treat jaundice?
How about the fact that it treats Seasonal Affective Disorder? (yeah, I got that). It helps regulate your body temperature, enhances biorhythms, and may be a treatment in treating T Cell Lymphoma. It may even help fight cavities. Really.

So let’s hurry up to summer and get some rays. Are you all ready for a warm up?
