The Benefits of Vitamin D – Get Outside!!

Get Outside!

Yikes!!! It’s the middle of August already.  Where has the summer gone??

You know I have been and will STAY on my soapbox about getting in exercise.  30 minutes of something 5 days a week.  Well, here in Chicago, we gotta make hay while the sun shines, because before you know it, Mother Nature will be putting on her shades and winter will be here.

Think it’s all about having fun in the sun?  I’m all for the picnics, concerts, and laying on the beach for sure.  But one of the best reasons to get outside is to get some Vitamin D.  This natural nutrient from the sun is one of the best fighters against aging, diseases like diabetes, cancer and dementia, depression, bone weakness and so much more.  Get it from the sun, from key foods and from supplements, but just be sure to get some!  Here’s more detail on why.  Take a look at this informational link:

Vitamin D is no cure all.  Nothing is.  But, as I come across tips to highlight, I have to share them, because it doesn’t take as much as it seems to stay healthy.  Awareness is key.  As Mother Maya always says, “When you know better, you can do better!”

Back to my pic above…

As you are out and about getting your sun on, be careful out there!  It gets crowded on the streets and lakefront as folks are definitely trying to get their walk, run and biking in!!  On beautiful days like we’ve been having lately, it’s such a blessing to relish them.  So I just move over and smile.

Keep on Sizzling!
