Here are some suggestions to get the most out of the spring season:

Get your daily dose of vitamin D.

Studies have shown that Vitamin D has a dramatic effect on improving people's moods. The human body absorbs the most vitamin D through sun exposure, and to get enough, it only takes between 10 and 30 minutes outside with your arms and legs exposed. 

It won't just make you feel good.

Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium, leading to healthy bones. According to the Vitamin D Society, a deficiency can increase the risk for a series of complications relating to bone health, autoimmunity and the cardiovascular system.

Grow a garden.

If you're trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle, you may want to consider taking up gardening.

This activity provide exercise and can promote a well-balanced diet.

What's better than eating fruits and vegetables harvested from your own backyard?
