Benefits Of Longer Days and More Sunshine

Personally, I'm a night person, and enjoy the winter months with shorter days. That having been said, I can't deny the benefits associated with longer days and more sunshine.

According to Serious Readers, there are benefits to our health and well-being that come with longer days:

  • Boosts Vitamin D - When exposed to sunlight, your body produces Vitamin D naturally. With more daylight comes more opportunities to take advantage of the sunshine.
  • Improved Sleep - High-quality sleep is essential to our well-being.
  • Increased Serotonin Levels - Exposure to sunlight is believed to increase the release of the hormone Serotonin. This hormone is known to give our moods a little boost while helping us to feel calm and relaxed.
