Take it out­side

Shape (Singapore) - - Healthy -

The force of na­ture is very real when it comes to putting you in a great head space. Plus, those happy vibes on the in­side trans­late to gor­geous ra­di­ance on the out­side. Be­ing out­doors for 30 min­utes a day – with sun­screen – is enough to bring on bliss. “The light keeps your cir­ca­dian rhythms in sync with the 24-hour day. This should help you get your beauty sleep and boost your spir­its,” ex­plains Dr Charles Czeisler, chief of the di­vi­sion of sleep and cir­ca­dian dis­or­ders at Brigham and Women’s Hospi­tal in Bos­ton. And we’re not talk­ing about sit­ting by a win­dow. “It turns out that the in­ten­sity of light out­side on a sunny day is about 20 times more pow­er­ful than in­door light,” says Dan Pardi, a sleep re­searcher. All the more rea­son to move your work­out out­doors.
