What Would Happen If You Never Went Outside


Visualize yourself running in your backyard with your dog or walking with your friends to the beach or even playing football with your family at the park. What does all of those thing have in common? All of those activities are activities you do outside, but what if you never placed a foot outside.

You’re getting your Vitamin D by a reaction your skin has to sunlight that makes your skin cells create Vitamin D. Vitamin D is important  for supporting your bones, and teeth. Researchers even suggest that Vitamin D may help fight against some diseases, like helping  reduce the chances of you having the flu or  even lowering your risk at a heart disease. It is almost impossible to get the right amount of Vitamin D without sunlight, because only a few foods have Vitamin D, and those that have it have it in small amount. Some of the foods that have Vitamin D are tuna, salmon, pork, cereal, orange juice, milk, sardines, liver, tofu, soybeans, spinach, kale, caviar, and cheese.

Spending time outdoors is important to your well being and you even actually adopt a better mood when you are outside. For example, if it is sunny outside, would you be happy or be moody? You would be happy because light makes people’s mood rise up. Physical activity has been shown to help people relax, and cheer up.If you don’t go outside your immune system would not be prepared to fight against some diseases and you will get sick very fast and you will get sick longer than normal people because your immune system is trying to fight against the virus.

But too much sun can be a bad thing. If you don’t watch out you could get sunburn. Sunlight might also be capable of damaging skin cells and put you at a greater risk for skin cancer.The Center of Disease of Control and Prevention warns that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can damage your skin in 15 minutes.
