Rise and shine! We have all heard of this phrase time and again. Well, an early morning start is good way to make sure that you have a great day. There are quite a few reasons that this adage is popular even today, with one of the main being the effect it has on our health and wellbeing. Although there are a number of ways by which one can soak in the morning sun, there is a unique manner that is healthy as well as exciting and fun!
Now, what most people do not know is that it is the sun’s rays between 7:00 AM and 9:00 AM that is best for the human body, as it helps generate Vitamin D and a lack of exposure to sunlight is one of the main causes of depression, blood pressure disorders and other lifestyle diseases. Here are some of the lesser known benefits of early morning sun:
- Improved sleep- By reducing the production of melatonin, it makes the body feel fresh and energetic, thereby affecting sleep patterns.
- Mental health- One of the most recommended therapies for improving one’s mental health and combatting depression is phototherapy or exposing one to sunlight.
- Bone health- This sun produced Vitamin also helps in absorption of calcium and calcium transfer across cell membranes, preventing bones from brittleness and breakage.
- Blood Circulation- The sunlight helps widen the blood vessels, which in turn allows the blood to bring in more oxygen and nutrients into cells, thus helping the heart function better.
- Immunity boost- Exposure to the morning sun helps produce more white blood cells, which can counter viruses and diseases, making the body more immune than before.
In spite of all the benefits from the sun, it can be boring to get up in the morning and simply roam around or sit in one spot, just to soak up the sun. However, well began is half done. Start this daily habit of soaking up the sun, in a unique way. Charter a yacht and cruise over the Arabian Sea while basking in the morning sun. Cruises start as early as 6 am. Get on a boat, drink some refreshing tea, enjoy the sunrise and enjoy good, healthy and wholesome breakfast while you soak in the sun. A pollution free environment with some fresh and cool air is the perfect way to kick start a healthy lifestyle!
Soak up on sunlight as the dawn breaks and enjoy a sunrise cruise in the midst of people you love and get some of your best pals or family to join in you in this endeavour and gift them a cruise to remember and the goodness of health!
So, if tanning is on your mind, rise and shine!
