Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mothers and mother figures out there! We know that things have been stressful over the past few weeks due to COVID-19, but Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the unmistakable impact mothers have in our lives and put the stress of COVID-19 on pause for a day. We understand that some of you may not be able to spend this special day with your loved ones due to the current pandemic, but you can still express your love with a virtual call/video call, online greeting card, or by sending a gift via mail.
Today, our message is for all of the mothers out there. We know how hard you work and how much you sacrifice to give your children a good life. Whether you have 1 child or 7, whether you’re caring for a newborn or your kids have long since grown and developed their own families, your job as a mother never comes to an end. At Coastal Transformations, we believe it’s good to take some time to relax and revive yourself. Today, we’d like to encourage you to also make time to invest in yourself.
A great way to improve your mood and health is by increasing your exposure to sunlight. The benefits of sunlight cannot be overstated. At Coastal Transformations, we take every opportunity we can to shine some light on the benefits of natural light. Natural light has been shown to have the following benefits:
- Increased vitamin D (vitamin D is beneficial for absorbing calcium and promoting bone growth, as well as helping to prevent certain types of cancers, heart disease, depression and weight gain).
- Improved sleep quality
- Increased production of serotonin, a.k.a the “the happiness hormone”
- Better vision
There are a number of easy ways you can increase your daily natural light intake. Small changes like taking your morning coffee/breakfast out on the patio (in the sun), reading your book outside, going for a walk, opening your drapes/curtains and windows to let light in can make a big difference. Aside from making small changes to your daily lifestyle, you could add more natural light with decor and interior decorating. Installing a skylight, solar tube or new windows/glass doors can increase light. Brighter colored paint and mirrors can also add more light to your spaces.
At Coastal Transformations, we are always willing and ready to help you find creative and unique ways to add more natural light and make your home more visually appealing. Reach out to Ken if you’re interested in hearing some recommendations on how you can enjoy more natural light. All it takes is a creative mindset and a short consultation to get started. We take this opportunity to once again wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.
