Protecting yourself from the sunlight also ensures that you won’t be having seasonal depression.
The American Academy of Pediatrics as well as the National Association of Sports and Physical Education recommends that one have at least an hour of playtime preferably outside if the conditions are good and this should be done on a day to day basis.
