These adorable animals enjoying the sunshine know what feels good. But their sunbathing is doing more than making them feel wonderful. Nicknamed the “sunshine cure,” Vitamin D derived from the basking in the sun, along with a healthy diet, is good for the heart, boosts the immune system, builds strong bones, and can even prevent some cancers.
The warm sun also helps reduce pain, and increases happy hormones in the brain, and is the perfect natural sleep inducer, as these snoozing pets can attest. So next time you feel tired or stressed, maybe it’s time to stretch out with your best fur friend and take a nice, warm nap.
