After what has been documented as one of Melbourne's coldest winters on record, the reality of feeling the sun on my skin and just simply (and literally) absorbing its warmth felt better and, was more than I could ever have hoped for. One vitamin the body requires to stay healthy is Vitamin D. It helps to keep our teeth and bones strong and is a natural mood elevator.
It has always amazed me how our bodies react to the yearly cycle of seasons. When winter comes and goes and the first glimpse of sunshine appears, you can literally walk out your front door and feel the excitement and anticipation of what the next season in the cycle is going to bring. Standing in the suns rays (for the first time in months), it touches your skin and you literally feel your body sucking in every ounce of goodness it has to offer. I liken this feeling to when your body is dehydrated. Just like those rays of sun, that big glass of water satisfies and gives you what it naturally craves and needs.
Cylinder Beach on North Stradbroke Island gave me that rehydration that my body so desperately needed.
