We are made to get sun through our eyes, on our face, and on our skin every day of our lives. From sun up to sun down and there are distinct benefits to sun exposure during every part of every day.
That’s an unnecessarily fancy way of saying consistent sleep/wake schedules. Having consistency in your sleep timing will do more for your daily recovery than you could probably measure. The moment you wake up, you’re prepping your body for the following evening’s sleep and recovery.
Getting sun on your face and eyes signals your body that it’s time to start your day. This can increase productivity and focus as it signals the brain to begin important, time regulated functions.
Sun exposure stimulates the production of vitamin D in your body. Vitamin D is responsible for strong bones because it regulates the absorption of calcium, but it also regulates other functions like boosting your immune function and staving off diseases. Getting that sun every day allows for consistent production of vitamin D so you can stay strong and fit for any task.
Studies have shown that the vitamin D you produce in response to sunlight boosts cognitive function.
Studies have linked an increased risk of myopia in children who get inadequate outdoor time throughout their early lives.
