Chasing Dawns: How Watching the Sun Rise Can Benefit Your Health and Well-being

Watching the sunrise may be one of the most simple yet profound activities you can do to improve your mental and physical health. Rising early and heading outdoors to watch the dawn break can help regulate your circadian rhythm, enhance your mood, reduce stress and improve your sleep.

Sunrises on the island of Crete can have a positive impact on people’s health in several ways. Exposure to early morning light is known to stimulate the production of vitamin D, a nutrient essential for strong bones and a healthy immune system. It also triggers the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood, appetite and sleep.

Additionally, watching the sunrise can provide a sense of awe and wonder, promoting feelings of gratitude and connection to the natural world. This can lead to a greater sense of purpose and well-being.

So, if you’re looking to improve your health and well-being, consider visiting our Blue View Villas in Crete, where there is sunlight of 2500 hours annually. The colour of the sea changes to follow the sun’s reflection. As you are up hill you experience the weakening of the day, the aromas of the flora and the sounds of the fauna. The benefits of getting up a little earlier and heading outside to catch the first light of the day may surprise you.
