Dr Donna's Tip of the Week

Exposure to direct sunlight each day has been shown to help fight off depression, improve sleep, and reduce stress. It has important impacts on physical health as well, including improving bone health and lowering blood pressure. Sun exposure is especially important in the winter, when the days are shorter and people spend less time outdoors.
