Can we become sick if we stay indoors?
March 15, 2019 6:01am CST
Many people told me that I will be sick if I spend too much indoors. Can lack of sun harm us so much? I don't spend enough time outside because I have some problems. But I wonder if this is true. Lack of sunlight can make us depressed, but sick? If this is true, I was not aware that exposure to sunlight is so important. Do you feel worse when you spend time indoors? And when you aren't exposed to sunlight?

Sunlight gives us in part vitamin D which what we need so much of. Dark days can be depressing all depends on how you look at it. Even being on the balcony if you have one or just outside the front or back door or peeping out of it can help.

@dya80dya Then go back out again if you can and stay another 5 minutes bit by bit. I have learned to look at it from another perspective really and its true that they can be depressing but you have to find the good part about it of course the good part of that is different for each of us.
Not enough sunshine can cause vitamin D-deficits. In North Europe we're adviced to take D-vitamin- supplements in the winter as there's only daylight for some hours every day. Not enough exposure to daylight can also cause bad sleep. I feel restless if I spend a whole day inside, it happens very seldom though
It's not exactly the sunlight that you need, it's what you can see, feel, and experience outside. You need to go out to breathe fresh air, to sweat from the heat of the sun and the busy life, to mingle and interact with other people for added knowledge about life, and to live a life with a purpose. You can't do that if you stay indoor all the time.
I do not like moving out in some seasons. That is March, April, May, and first 10 days of June. It does not mean I do not move out. I drastically cut down on movement, and reprogram it to evenings if possible. That is because it is disgustingly hot out here. All other seasons, I am hopelessly in love with Sun. So I guess, I have no issues. So I would not be the best source.
