According to the data, sunshine makes us feel more energetic and brightens up our mood because it helps our bodies produce endorphins and serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter. Natural light also has a great effect on our immune system, bones, muscle health, liver function and it can solve sleeping disorders. Laughter, one of the main symptoms of happiness, is a very efficient way of burning calories! Scholars in economics even found that an unexpected increase of the amount of time the sun shines often affects the stock markets positively.
Scientists have also established that sunshine and happiness make us live longer. All the more reason to make sure you make the most of your holiday and head for the sun!
