Sunny side up.

I love spending time outside during these times of social distancing.  I certainly plan to keep it up once things return to yet another new normal.  How have you found ways to make your time enjoyable?  Are you counting your blessings and not the weeks?  We all need helpful ways to cope and daily activities to look forward to.  We may not all be inclined to go outside, and sometimes the days are cold.

As we mentioned on Live Well, Vitamin D is essential for general health and for strong bones.  According to Care/of, Vitamin D deficiency is rare, but has serious health consequences, like rickets or osteoporosis.  A 2011 study showed that over 70% of Americans get less than the daily recommended amount of vitamin D.

If you don’t get a lot of sun – which helps your body produce vitamin D – or if your diet is low in foods that contain it, you may be at risk for these conditions in the future. Consider eating foods that contain vitamin D are fatty fish, beef liver, and fortified milk and cereal. I have a gift for you if you find that you are not spending as much time outdoors, be sure to get enough Vitamin D as part of your supplement routine.  Enjoy.
