Well hello Sunshine 🌞 😊

Seriously how good is this weather! Vitamin D has some pretty impressive effects on the body. Sadly, a lot of people are currently vitamin D deficient.

Sunshine makes life happy!

Lifestyles are just more indoors now, often – we work indoors & weekends involve more indoor activities, or for the southern states there is less sunshine during the day in winter.  Even the ‘slip slop slap’ campaign plays a role as people cover up a bit more & wear sunscreen more.  There are loads more reasons, but you get the idea.

Bottom line is you have to get some vitamin D.  I try to work it into the day with 2x 10min ‘outings’ in the sun, when on breaks either in the garden or even a walk around the block.  I try to go mid-morning or late afternoon, not around midday (stay sensible, peeps).

Just a couple of reasons why vitamin D is important?
🌞 Assists in protection against dementia – even a moderate deficiency can increase dementia risks.
🌞 Stay slimmer – early morning sun exposure helps regulate your internal body clock, which regulates your metabolism, which in turn influences weight gain.
🌞 Lowers your blood pressure – the sun exposure helps with a pressure reducing compound which is released into your blood vessels

So, go & soak up some sunshine.

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.

  1. I find it interesting & it is just so prevalent as an issue globally. There are a huge amounts of benefits to be had, both physically & mentally. Just 10 min in the sunshine reaps so many benefits – it is a no brainer. Great to hear, you are also aware of this & spreading the message 🙂
