Nothing to watch on Netflix? Are your eyes exhausted from too much screen time? Does your body feel like it’s locked in place from sitting so long? If so, it’s time for a sunshine break. Natural light is the conductor of the orchestra that is our circadian rhythm – the 24 hour cycle of physiological processes constantly taking place in our bodies. Each and every cell looks to natural light to determine when to do what it was meant to do.
When we spend several non-sleeping hours without natural light, our bodies simply don’t perform optimally. The good news; just 5-15 minutes in the sunshine can provide the re-charge you need to get through your day. To really kick up the benefit factor of your time in the sunshine, combine it with a quick exercise routine, exciting adventure, or family time.
Whether you’re a local or visiting, it’s the perfect time of year to experience the outdoors in Phoenix. Need some ideas? Check out my Guide to Sunshine Breaks in the Phoenix Metro. Then select the link below to book your favorite outdoor experience.
