Signs of the change in the light are everywhere these days. My body notices this so much and I love the changes it brings, for myself and for all the life around me.
I was having a conversation with a friend the other day about melatonin, and kids on computers, and life indoors… and he was sharing that just 15 minutes of sunlight each day brings better sleep and a better flow of all the bodies systems. We have had a very dark and wet winter here. Unusually so. While I don’t suffer from seasonal depression, and don’t mind clouds and rain, my body responds so incredibly to a day of sunlight after so much darkness. And it seems the whole town comes alive! We are, in many ways, no different than a fern frond or blade of grass. The life force of the sun is so incredible, so nourishing.
