We all know getting natural sunlight is good, but how does it specifically benefit us? And how will adding windows to your home enable those health benefits?
Lowers Blood pressure
When your skin is exposed to UV rays, your skin produces nitric oxide. Nitric oxide has been found in studies to lower blood pressure! So get some sunlight into your home and soak up the sun the easy way, from the comfort of your couch. Picture windows might be the best option here, they are large in size and offer a beautiful view, hence the name picture window.
Sunlight triggers the body’s production of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is SO important and most of us are deficient in this vitamin! Adding a few windows to your home will get the Vitamin D production moving along. Vitamin D reduces depression, fights diseases, and boosts weight loss.
You get a better night of sleep
The sunlight sets your body’s clock when it comes to waking up and falling asleep. It maintains a normal circadian rhythm so getting your dose of sunlight during the day is vital. To ensure you are going to fall asleep well, get your dose of sunlight when you wake up in the morning. Getting this early sunlight tells your body to jumpstart for your day. That way when it’s time to go to bed, your body will know to sleep due to lack of sunlight.
Sunlight enhances your mood
Did you know that serotonin can be naturally increased by spending more time in the sunlight? Serotonin makes you more active and alert so naturally increasing these levels will leave you feeling great. If you have windows, you can continue increasing your serotonin even during the winter when people are fighting the winter blues.
