Now that springtime is here we can expect sunnier and happier days. Studies show that pleasant weather is associated with boosted moods and broadened thinking. For example, when quizzed, people can recall more objects on a sunny day than a cloudy one. Also, drivers are more likely to pick up hitchhikers on sunny days. Despite the benefits of sunny days, in recent years, many of us have decreased our sun exposure.*
Take advantage of sunny days safely by using sunglasses, hats and SPF-lotion. Natural sunlight is a free mood enhancer, and it encourages the production of vitamin D.
