I hope you got out this weekend to enjoy the start of summer and the beautiful weather!  More importantly, I hope you were able to soak up some vitamin D.  How adorable is this pic of my niece and sister soaking up their daily dose?!

What’s a health conscious person to do?

Everyone seems to be a afraid of the sun these days.  With skin cancer rates on the rise, it’s no wonder.  You definitely need to protect yourself from the sun and avoid getting burnt but it’s also important to get a little unprotected exposure as well.  You only need about 15 a day in order to get your daily recommended dose.  And it’s probably best not to go out when the sun is at it’s strongest for those 15 min.  Be smart about your exposure.

 

Now stop reading this and GO OUTSIDE!
