5 Reasons Why Sunsets Are Good for Your Health

Five reasons why sunsets are good for your health by Kristen M. Brown, Samba to the Sea.

Did you know that watching sunset is actually beneficial for your mental AND physical health?

Nope, I’m not pulling your arm! There are multiple studies and research that all support incorporating sunsets into your daily life. As a photographer in Costa Rica, I’m lucky enough to watch and photograph Costa Rica’s magical sunsets every night. And after first hand experience chasing sunsets in Costa Rica for almost six years(!!), I totally agree with the research that supports watching sunsets is good for your health!

And what's even better is that this week I've compiled five reasons why sunsets are good for your health according to the smarty pants doctors. You ready for this? Let's talk about sunsets!

5 Reasons Why Sunsets Are Good for Your Health

  1. Watching sunset helps you appreciate life.
  2. Watching sunset helps you feel more energized.
  3. Watching the sun pass over the horizon (sungazing) helps you feel better.
  4. Watching sunset helps slow down your perception of time.
  5. Watching sunset helps you feel more satisfied with life.

So feel free to show your boss this research as your hall pass to take a quick break from work to watch sunset! OK, maybe your boss wouldn’t be too thrilled with this idea, BUT just because you can’t watch sunset as often as you like, how about the next best thing – – a breathtaking sunset image to hang at home just like this breathtaking palm tree sunset print, Summer Nights, below!

Pura Vida,
Kristen
