Get Some Sun

It is starting to get colder here in Colorado and I think we are supposed to get snow some time this week. I love Colorado because I love the mild summers and the mild winters. I get to play in snow one day and the next its all gone and sunny! Winter makes it harder to get outside and get some sun, but it is still important for us to get our daily intake of fresh, all natural, sunshine!

Sunshine is good for us, it helps you produce vitamin D which aids in calcium absorption. It also elevates our mood and can be effective against eczema! Just remember to limit your exposure to 10-15 minutes in the early morning or late evening when the sun's rays are less intense. At all other time (and if you'll be out longer) remember to where a good sunscreen the guards against UVA and UVB rays. Excess exposure can lead to skin cancer and wrinkles, so protection is key!
