Sunlight has the ability to stimulate brain activity an enhance:
Sunlight increases the release of a hormone in the brain called serotonin, which is associated with improved mood, which contributes to wellbeing and happiness.

During the winter months when sunlight exposure is much lower, people are more likely to develop mood issues such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Get out there and enjoy the sunshine! To learn more about ways to improve mood, schedule a free consultation with our director Dr. Jolene Ross.
