Light, a natural miracle cure
Winter is approaching, the cold is setting in, hot chocolate and movie night season is uppon us.
As time goes by, daylight diminishes, leading to increased fatigue and a possible drop in morale.
We’re here to tell you all about the importance of light for your health!
Why light is important
5 to 15 minutes of sunlight a day allows your body to produce vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for your health, it keeps your bones strong, boosts your morale and your immune system and helps you produce serotonin, the “happiness hormone”. As you will have understood, the sun is a true well-being ally.
Light also secretes melatonin, known as the “sleep hormone”. It therefore helps you regulate your rhythm, sleep better and improve your form!
We therefore invite you to cover up and find the courage to set off in search of a more or less long walk.
Whether grey, windy or sunny skies, we invite you to breathe in the fresh air and let yourself be amazed by the little pleasures of nature.
Different lights, different magic
Consider natural light as a real gift. Try to contemplate the glow of the setting or rising sun. Watch as the sky gets adorned with an endless palette of oranges and pinks. These bright, flamboyant colours put on their final show before giving way to darkness. Marvel at this natural painting that is renewed every day.
Take advantage of the sun’s rays during the day, however small, and let them caress your face.
Contemplate nature illuminated by different lights.
Brighten up your life even on grey days
We all know that light is as beautiful as it is fickle. For those days when the sun does not shine, here are a few tricks to have up your sleeve.
Put some sunshine on your plate by cooking comfort food rich in vitamin D. Vitamin D is found in various foods such as eggs, oily fish (salmon, tuna, etc.) and milk. Here is an an example of a salmon starter to brighten up your meal here. A major oversight in winter is the lack of hydration,
remember to drink as much as possible!
Boost your physical and mental beauty! Take time for yourself and your well-being. You can opt for a manicure or a water circuit. What could be better than enjoying the fresh air while being immersed in warm, envelop la ing water?
Warm your heart by spending time with your loved ones. Put away your phones, bring out the board games and home-made recipe books and play your favourite music.
