I love Indian curry. There is no other food like it. This evening we are having some from our favourite take away. My boys had curry even while I breast feed them and it is still one of their most favourite dishes. Sometimes I would make some homemade curry, but there is that special taste when you buy it from people who have cooked it all their life. Curry is one of the most complete dishes there is as it combines all the flavors in this amazing and nourishing dish. One of the most important ingredient is turmeric.Turmeric and Cinnamon are powerful antioxidants that continue to gain acceptance as natural nutrients able to assist human health and prevent chronic disease.

Today I want to write about sunshine and sun light.

We had an absolutely glorious day here in Bangor.It is the beginning of one of my favourite time of the year. The days are getting longer and brighter. My energy levels are getting higher and higher. I Love the Sun.

The sun was splitting  the trees, clear blue sky and no wind. Pure bliss to be outside and enjoy it. I am so late with my post today as I was out for the most of the day. It feels so nice to be home chilling out after so much activity. I love this kind of tiredness and the boys had a brilliant time and a great appetite. They eat well normally, but today even better. benefits of sunlight

Sunlight is one of the most effective healing agents that exists.Here are some of the benefits.It is best to stay away from sun protection cremes. I am 100 % sure , that humans are designed to get sunlight and I would never use sunscreen.

Getting enough sunlight during the day can help you sleep better at night. If you are exposed to natural light during the day, it will increase your melatonin output at night. Melatonin is a natural hormone made by our bodies. It enhances sleep and slows down the aging process.

Sunlight helps to balance out your hormones. It may even help to relieve certain symptoms of PMS.

Sunlight improves the function of your liver and helps it to break down toxins and wastes that could lead to cancer and other diseases.

If you’ve got swollen, arthritic joints, sunlight may help lower your pain levels.

Sunlight helps your body convert a form of cholesterol that is present in your skin into vitamin D.

So there you have it-just some of the benefits of sunlight.

Apart from all these the immediate effects are better mood and restful sleep. Giant's Causeway at Sunset, County Antrim, Northern Ireland

This is one of the best ways to love yourself. Whatever you do in your busy day do your best to stop before you are tired. Take one evening a week or more if you can to just enjoy doing nothing. Sit down, take a long bath , let your mind wonder about and just be.rest before you get tired

 

This is the best prevention of fatigue and anxiety.If you  have a busy schedule or you are may be a high achiever pick at least one day of the week when you just let yourself be-get up when you feel like it, do whatever you feel like, enjoy being yourself and take it easy.
