Natural Mood Boosters: Why Moms Should Grab Their Kids & Head Outside! by Christie Gosch

The next time the sun is shining, grab the kids and head outside for the day. Sunshine is a natural mood-lifter because it increases both serotonin and melatonin levels in your body, which helps to:

  • regulate proper sleep cycles 
  • improve your mood 
  • increase your energy level

Just be sure not to overdo it. Play it safe in the sun by slathering on that sunscreen or block. Use sunglasses for comfort, but take them off when you can – exposing your eyes to the sun gives you the same benefits but is better for your skin.
