Recharge your batteries with sunlight, even in everyday life!
Sunlight sets our organ clock correctly, gives a spontaneous sense of well-being, regulates and activates the metabolism and other chemical processes in our body. Sunlight therefore has a positive effect on digestion, cholesterol, blood pressure, nerves, hormones and more. It influences the ability to concentrate, physical detoxification, strengthens the bones, stimulates the general self-healing power and increases the tolerance to stress.
With more energy we are much more relaxed.
If you think that you have to drive far away to benefit from the sun, we have good news. You can integrate the sun into your everyday life. Have breakfast outside, spend your lunch break outside and maybe you manage a small walk every day – for example make your way by foot instead of by car. 70% of people in Copenhagen ride to work by bike - movement in combination with the sun (even with clouds the invigorating radiation comes through) increases the chance of a long, healthy life by 50%, according to studies!
PS: Avoid sizzling in the midday heat, sunburning is no longer healthy. AND: The morning sun has a particularly invigorating power in the first few hours.
The more skin gets sun, the better. By the way, natural sunlight is much more vitalizing than every light therapy , even on cloudy winter days. People who miss the sun in winter should spend about one hour outdoors, otherwise half an hour is usually sufficient.
Not only indigenous people, Tao and Vedas but also the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans knew about the strengthening effect of sunlight. The "right to sun" was even anchored in the Roman law. Paracelsus, Hildegard von Bingen and the mystic Jakob Lorber have dealt as extensively with it, like the Swiss physician and nutritionist Dr. Bircher Benner, just to name a few. The latter pointed out that we "eat" sunlight as well over fresh food.
Foods that have grown outdoors and are eaten as freshly as possible, demonstrably contain many more photons, how light particles are called in science, as vegetables from the glasshouse. In wintertime the best food rich of sun are wild plants from forest and meadow (for example chickweed) and herbs from window sill and garden as well as winter vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, apples, red beet as well as cereals. Our typical winter vegetables can hold photons for a long time and are therefore "sun food" for the winter.
A third possibility are sunshined substances.
The best is, you are enough in the sun and eat a lot of sun-ripened fruits and vegetables. But if there is already a major lack of energy, enduring long-term stress, or if sick or elderly people cannot get outside, sun-kissed substances can be a valuable source for energy.
