Springtime has arrived and we have an extra hour of daylight to play with.
Make it a goal to spend an hour outside each day that you can. Pick up an a volunteer shift somewhere outside. Join a tree planting group or a park cleanup! Take your kids on a walk or call up a friend and invite them to go to the park.
Sensible amounts of sun can cheer you up and is good for your body! The Vitamin D you get from even 15 minutes a day in the sun is essential for absorbing calcium and keeping our bones healthy. It can help protect you from a myriad of diseases and ailments such as osteoporosis, heart disease, Type II diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
Don't forget that sunscreen if you're going to be out for long.
