Why is sunlight good for me?

A sunny day can do more than just raise your spirits – it can make you healthier! Your body converts sunlight into vitamin D, a vital vitamin for stronger bones. Adults who get sunlight early in the day are likely to have a lower body mass index, a measure that takes into account weight and height, according to recent study.

The fact that people sleep better if they get light in the morning could account for this, since people who get enough sleep have an easier time managing their weight. The so-called “sunshine vitamin” helps the body absorb calcium, which is essential for bone health.
