Now that it is warmer outside and the sun is shining longer, it is time to get outside and soak up as much vitamin D as you can. There are many health benefits of Vitamin D including healthier bones, reduced risk of flu and diabetes, reduction of cancer cell progression, cardiovascular health, healthier pregnancies, mood elevation and many others. Along with a healthy diet that includes fish oils and egg proteins, it is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows most people to produce sufficient vitamin D.

Here are some suggestions for outdoor activities that can be fun and can increase your overall health:

  • Take a walk
  • Plant a garden
  • Watch a local outdoor sporting event
  • Ride a bike
  • Feed the ducks
  • Visit an arboretum
