So why should you make it a priority to take your kids to the park as much as possible?
It will help elevate your mood. When we are outside in the sun our bodies increase serotonin levels, these hormones work alongside with Melatonin and help elevate our moods. Ever heard of the winter blues? Seasonal Affective Disorder? (S.A.D.- ironic name, I know) Well there really truly is a link between the two. I don’t know about you, but going outside to play seems to really have way more advantages than disadvantages!
So, as you are thinking about your summer plans, don’t forget about the little things! Believe me, it will make everyone smile!
