8. Sun exposure is dangerous.
Sorry, but you need sunshine--with NO SUNSCREEN! You need the Vitamin D as well as the happy brain chemicals. Try to get a little sun whenever you can. I'm not talking hours and hours, baking like bread; I mean 15-30 minutes every day, with the sun hitting as much skin as humanely possible, The best times and months are "off-peak" like spring and fall and early morning, late afternoon. If a cat won't lie out in the midday sun in July, you probably shouldn't either. The experience should feel gently warming, like a soft caress, not like you're frying in a skillet! You can sense when the best time to soak up the sun is, so use your intuition. But don't be afraid of the sun--it is a huge cancer prevention ally, as well as a fortress against depression, sleep disorders, and so many other modern brain diseases. If you're worried about skin cancer, eat more anti-oxidants from fruit and vegetables and drink red wine and Red Clover infusions--the number one herbal cancer defense.
