A sunny day boosts your mood.

Sunlight is one of Mental care actions

Scientific evidence

Current science indicates that:
(1) The onset of depression relates to reduced serotonin levels, and
(2) Serotonin levels increase on sunny days more than on darker days.
A well-known therapy called "light therapyā€¯ is a direct application of these scientific findings.

What you can do with this knowledge

When you feel a little stressed, anxious, sad, or upset, take a quick break and walk outside or just look out the window. Even sunshine under a cloudy sky has plenty of light.


Unprotected exposure to UV radiation burns you like a steak. No really—it's a real health risk.
