Playing outside helps kids sleep at night

Remember how it was when we were kids? Mom kicked us out of the house and made us go out and play in the sunshine.Somehow, she knew it was good for us.

Now, research has actually proven that. Many studies have shown a direct link between time in the great outdoors and increased obesity, depression, stress, diabetes, ADD and poor performance in the classroom. Now, they’ve found a correlation to sleeping.

“To get a good night’s sleep they need natural sleep-inducing light during the day, the soothing effects of more natural, outdoor scenes and enhanced exercise from outdoor play.”

Hmmm… I think it’s time to go outside and play.
