? Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the 21-Day Self-Care Challenge.
? Each day for 21 days we give you an action to complete that will help you to take care of yourself so that you can better take care of the other aspects of your life effectively.
Each of our tasks focuses on either physical, mental or emotional self-care.
You can either follow the tasks as specified or individualize them.
We suggest scheduling off some self-care time in your diary each night so that you keep your meeting with yourself.
Today we are going to focus on some physical self-care.
✅ Get fifteen minutes of sun.
I’ve got sunshine…
It’s no secret, sunshine makes us happy and because it is a source of Vitamin D it also has a positive effect on ageing and provides many cardiovascular benefits.
Exposure to sunlight helps produce melatonin which in turn improves our circadian rhythm and helps us sleep better.
Aim to get about 10 to 20 minutes of exposure on non-sunscreen skin every day.
Rather have a small amount of sun time each day than a huge sun binge as we all know that can result in sunburn!
Just 15min can help promote bone growth, strengthen your immune system, lower your blood pressure and even promote weight loss!
