The 2020 Christmas Season is upon us and in less than two weeks, families will gather to celebrate the most beloved holiday of the year. This year will certainly be different, but we can still embrace the magic of the season while keeping our family safe. Although online shopping and Zoom calls with far away relatives may be the norm this year, you can still create lasting memories with your immediate family. This year, curl up and watch some of your favorite holiday classics, take a ride to view your local light shows and holiday displays or simply make a gingerbread house or bake cookies. There are many ways to make this season one to remember.
During the holiday, it’s essential that you feel your absolute best so that you can share your good spirits with your loved ones. Planet Beach offers an array of automated products and services that will help elevate your mood. My go to services during the Christmas Season are Sunless & UV Tanning. Moderate exposure to UV may boost your immune system, help you sleep and improve your mood. A recent article in Healthline noted this about sunlight and serotonin.
“We’re used to hearing about how too much of the sun’s warm rays can be harmful to your skin. But did you know the right balance can have lots of mood-lifting benefits?
Sunlight and darkness trigger the release of hormones in your brain. Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain’s release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. At night, darker lighting triggers the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping you sleep.
Without enough sun exposure, your serotonin levels can dip. Low levels of serotonin are associated with a higher risk of major depression and seasonal pattern (formerly known as seasonal affective disorder or SAD). This is a form of depression triggered by the changing seasons.”
It’s no secret that 2020 has been a tough year, but there are actions we can take to improve our quality of life during the holiday season. Exercise, eat healthy and visit Planet Beach to receive moderate levels of UV.
