The link between vitamin D levels and psychological well-being

 

Getting some much needed rays and vitamin D today after a grey few days In Dublin! It made me think about de-motivated i feel to be outside when the sky is grey but also about how important this is for my self-care and well-being.

 

Did you know that there's a link between increased levels of Vitamin D and psychological well-being?

Vitamin D is produced when bare skin is exposed to sunlight.  Check out this article for some really useful information about this topic. 

 

Some tips:

Try get outside for 10 minutes a day

Walk to the shop instead of driving

Stand on your balcony/ in the garden and do some stretches

Wrap up, open the window at home and feel the air (hopefully sunshine!) on your face and body.
