The study says that soaking up sun can help a person to lessen the stress and reduce the health problems as well.
“When it comes to your mental and emotional health, the amount of time between sunrise and sunset is the weather variable that matters most. This applies to the clinical population at large, not just those diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder,” said Mark Beecher, Professor at the Brigham Young University, US.
The factors that mostly play significant role in the stress problem includes wind chill, rainfall, solar irradiance, wind speed, temperature and many more.
It was also disclosed in the study that the amount of time between sunrise and sunset also play role in reducing the stress of a person, according to the study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders.
“On a rainy day or a more polluted day, people assume that they’d have more distress. But we didn’t see that. We looked at solar irradiance, or the amount of sunlight that actually hits the ground. We tried to take into account cloudy days, rainy days, pollution but they washed out,” Beecher added.
