I’m talking about a completely different rainbow—the one hidden in sunlight.
Sunlight can be split into the colors of the rainbow, like when it passes through a prism. Each color has a unique biological effect. And getting this sunlight into naked eyes and onto bare skin is foundational to our health. We need daily exposure to key colors of light in order to thrive.
What colors do we need and what do they do?
From dawn onward, the colors that brighten our world from the sun come to us in a predictable fashion. Dawn is dominated by the infrared wavelengths of light. Infrared is soothing, anti-inflammatory, and transforms the water inside our body into its structured, energy-giving phase called EZ water.
Ultraviolet (UVA) light
Here are a few ways we can get more of the benefits of sunlight:
- Exercise outside at sunrise [during this early, beneficial infrared time. Make sure to wear sunscreen when doing this at the highest UV hours of 10am-4pm.]
- Drive without sunglasses on and the sunroof open
- Work near an open window
- Schedule your first meeting of the day to be a phone call, and talk outside
- Sit outside for lunch
- Take “light breaks” throughout the day to sync up and soak up the healing light frequencies available
