April Showers Bring Vitamin D Superpowers
It’s (still) springtime here (for a few short weeks) on the West Coast of California and we’re all for going tops off! But for good reason: Vitamin D. So your homework for the month is to build a base of the good stuff, and here’s how and why:
Benefits of vitamin D:
- It helps fight disease
- It reduces depression
- It can help weight loss
- It regulates calcium and phosphate to keep bones healthy
- It lowers blood pressure
Here’s how to get it:
- Go on 10-minute walks outside! At least one, but as many as you can. Take an hour if you have it and soak up that sun! (Add sunscreen to prevent aging.)
- Take your workout outside! Even if it’s just your warm up, even if it’s just your cool down. Take one part of your workout outside every day this month.
- Each lunch in the sun! C&K CEO Danny Lehr does it everyday. He likes to build a base, but he’s also much happier when he does it consistently.
Getting some sun is essential for human happiness, and the benefits of Vitamin D fully support the cause. So drink your coffee on the porch this morning and let us know how good you feel.
