How much sunlight should I get?
As we saw in the efficacy of sunlight , sunlight is a true natural nourishing and tonic .
then, How much sunlight should I get in a day?
How much sunlight you need can vary from person to person depending on skin color, individual sun tolerance, location on Earth, and season.
Still, let's look at some general guidelines for a certain amount per day!
Early morning sunlight (6am-9pm):
Watching the sunrise for 10 to 20 minutes can effectively set the circadian rhythm right.
Morning Sunlight (9am-12pm):
If you are just starting out in the sun, we recommend starting with 5 minutes . After that, as your sun tolerance improves, aim to gradually increase it to up to 30 minutes.
Morning sunlight especially plays an essential role in the body,
At this time, it is important to develop tolerance through the early morning sunlight so that you can receive the light without side effects!
Afternoon Sunlight (12pm - 5pm):
Usually, the intensity of UV light is highest, and it is the best time to synthesize vitamin D.
But if you lack sun tolerance, it's time for side effects to follow, so it's important to build your tolerance through consistent morning sun exposure!
Late afternoon sunlight (17:00 - 19:00):
By watching the sunset for 10-20 minutes, you can effectively get the wavelength (light) that helps you sleep while maintaining your circadian rhythm!
In addition, it is important to expose as many body parts as possible, as infrared wavelengths are at their highest, which is a great help in skin regeneration, injury recovery, and alleviating inflammation!
Why are sunrises and sunsets essential?
Sunrise and sunset are when the sun is the farthest from our body, so the high energy wavelengths of UV and blue light are relatively better.
Therefore, there is no room for strong UV and blue light to have adverse effects on people with weak sunlight tolerance. This is when the infrared (red light) wavelength, which is the color of healing, is at its highest.
Infrared wavelength through sunlight and infrared irradiator,
It is a safe light with numerous beneficial effects and few side effects.
Infrared rays are mainly used for therapeutic purposes in dermatology and oriental medicine clinics.
“Infrared is the fastest way to create Solar Callus. Infrared exposure will progressively make it safer to receive UV rays.”
-Dr Jack Kruse
Sunrise and sunset are also safe times to practice Sungazing .
Looking directly at the sun sets the circadian rhythm right,
One of the most effective ways to stimulate the secretion of essential hormones in your body!
Sun-gazing activates the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), located in the lower part of the brain, an internal organ that plays a key role in the circadian clock.
When and how much is best to stare at the sun?
As a general guideline , ideally the first hour after the sun rises above the horizon and one hour before sunset.
This custom is a proven practice that has been around for centuries, and if practiced with respect for sunlight,
It can provide a tremendous virtuous cycle to health without side effects.
If staring directly into the sun is still difficult for you, looking up or down and placing your gaze in a less direct position may be a good alternative.
We recommend starting with 2 minutes a day and increasing gradually!
Let's listen to your body
You also need to practice listening to your body.
Excessive exposure to sunlight without preparation can cause side effects.
Gradual sun exposure is desirable, and if you want to put a strain on your body, take a break in the shade and don't forget to relax!
Excessive amounts at one time, whatever it is, have side effects.
Slowly, slowly, respecting the providence of nature and with sunlight,
Remember, it can be the most powerful remedy to solve the root of all diseases!
