S U N L I G H TPerth Wellness Coach Sunlight Perth Beach

Make an effort where possible to see the sunrise and set at least once a week. Make time for this in your schedule when planning your week.

I try my hardest to do it every single day… why?! You might think it’s such a simple and non-important exercise but I’m here to tell you – Humans need light for survival.

Red Light, which is available in abundance in the early morning and late afternoon, fuels our cells at the basic form of ATP energy, it improves our immune system capabilities, it increases the production of serotonin in the brain (our feel good hormone), it’s brilliant for our mental health and mood and it helps build health bones.

Yes – sunlight CAN be harmful, so it helps to regulate when you’re expose to sunlight. Typically in Perth summer, between the hours of 9:30am and 4:00pm is our no go time, because the UV light during this time can be harmful to cells and cause cellular disruption and damage. So, be careful during these times and exercise caution.

Making a change to connect with nature is so important to human health. We are, at the end of the day, connected with and a part of the natural world. So plan, take the time and encourage others to enjoy the simple things that can bring so much joy.
