A – Z CHALLENGE………….

SUNSHINE – The sunlight of rays, warmth and light from the sun, a feeling of happiness. What is it about sunshine that puts that little happy step into our walk. When we wake and see those rays of sunshine, we can’t wait to jump out of bed, no need to snuggle down and take that extra ten mins before stepping out into the fresh morning air. The sunshine warms our homes, the garden springs into life, and we shed all those winter layers. And on top of that if you are someone’s sunshine, you make their world brighter, radiant, the air is full of cheerfulness, and we maybe all have little rays of sunshine in our life some where, happy little people who make others feel happy, especially in difficult situations, because they just shine and shine. Sunshine is a cute affectionate word to use to show our endearment and love to others, I have my little sunshine, do you ?Β

Now we all know about the warnings we are told about regarding the sun and it’s rays, but just recently there are numerous articles by professional offices, who are now giving recognition to the benefits of the sun, for example the Harvard School of Public Health have researched that frequent exposure to sunshine lowers rheumatoid arthritis risk, and is also linked to prevention of serveral serious diseases, from Type II diabetes to various types of cancer, they also state that older women who enjoy frequent exposure to sunlight throughout their life are less likely to develope rheumatoid arthritis.Sunshine is wonderful for vitamin D and a healthy dose of sunshine is vital for good health. It is believed “The sun – the giver of life on earth”

Sun screen – aside from containing many cancer-causing chemicals, alcohols, parabens and solvents – blocks Vitamin D production, Vitamin D deficiences are linked to osteoporosis, depression and autoimmune disorders, it is said that people especially young people who choose to totally block the sun, rather than embrace it, might suffer from the same in the long term. Warning people to avoid sunshine causes more harm than good, lack of sunshine is responsible for many diseases according to recent research. Vitamin A and D have proven as being a defense against deadly new tuberculosis strains. Adequate levels of Vitamin A & D is crucial for a healthy immune system.

I would like to point out that the above information is from an article issued by the Harvard School of Public Health. I personally do not have anything against the sunshine,but, I do think it is like anything else,if we take the sun in moderation, and if we apply a sun screen we should be very careful as to what could be in it, we should not assume that any sunscreen is good for us, as it is pointed our above.

Living in Spain, the sunshine is a big part of my life, but other hot countries like Spain, do not hold the highest in disease associated with sun rays. Β

  1. Great post! I love nothing better than a sunny day and blue skies, it lifts the mood right away. I’d happily spend hours out in the sun! I’m much more aware of protecting my skin now though. I never used to bother with sunscreen at all but living in a country with some of the highest rates of melanoma in the world, I’m more careful now πŸ™‚
    And I’m so pleased to see Sunshine mentioned as a affectionate name … It’s one of my favourites πŸ˜€

  2. My mood changes when the sun is out. I love it! I don’t wear sunscreen anymore because of all the chemicals but then I’m not out there sizzling myself. πŸ’•πŸ˜‰

    People who live in countries where there is little sunshine in winter can suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) which is treated with light therapy. Severe lack of Vit D can lead to ricketts. I know. I had it as an infant. Back then it was thought not good to expose babies to too much sun. Although I was only a baby, my parents often talked about the impact on me. I was a fractious baby, difficult to settle. I presume from extreme pain. I can still remember the taste of the cod liver oil we all had to take as awareness and understanding improved.

    Lovely post. Here in Melbourne today the skies were gray and I can’t wait for the sun to come out again. It changes my mood completely. There’s no doubt that rays of sunshine lifts our mood and releases those happy hormones. Wishing you sunshine and love. πŸ™‚
