From morning to night-time we tend to live in a closed environment. From work to sports to shopping all you have changed to a point that nothing desires us to urge out. And times we step out, we wear clothes and sunscreen cream So, no specs of sunlight fall on our skin. We have adapted to live indoors. Yet God has not adapted our body to live without sunlight.
Sunlight is a biological need for us. And since we’re not getting enough Sunlight, several things are getting down for our health. Most of us start feeling unhappy. Stress, anxiety & depression has become a typical state of mind. We’re on pills to feel happy.

It’s a alarming situation for all us. But believe me, the solution is very easy.
Now let’s discuss what to do?
Simple, we have to come out from Indoors to get some sunlight. Sunlight has to come back into our lives again.
Surprisingly our ancestors knew to use sunlight for healing! Sun gazing was practiced all over the world.
In Germany, during World War I, they used sunlight to treat war wounds. When troopers fighting within the war got gunfire wounds. Rather wrapping wounds with clothes they exposed it to the Sun for many hours daily. They used sunlight as an antiseptic to clean up the injuries.
In Rome they practiced solar architecture. Rome Architects had to consider health while designing buildings. They designed buildings with most sunlight getting inside.

But such a common factor has turned uncommon for us. So come on, make your body a piece of marvel by Sun charging daily.
Sun Charging? We know phone charging, laptop charging but yes our body also needs charging.
So How to Sun Charge?
Sun Gaze is the easiest way to sun charge your body. It helps in getting rid of many ailments, feel happy and healthy.
To Sun Gaze is an ancient practice. It’s not something new. But do it when sun is not bright at all. In the early morning during sunrise or the evening when Sunsets.
The greatest gift of mother nature, we humans enjoy is “Brain”. But we hardly use 8-10% of it.
God has gifted us with such immense power. But a major part of the brain stays dormant, because no sunlight is reaching it.
Sunlight acts as a power supply for the brain. If the brain gets this power supply, it can work wonders. Sunlight can reach your brain quickest through our eyes. Eye is an extended part of the human brain. But yes, eyes are very delicate organs also.
So while we Sun gaze we need to be careful and take care to prevent any damage to the eyes. Eyes act as windows of the brain.
How to Sun Gaze?
Look at the Sun with our naked eyes. It is very easy, look at the sun such as we look at the TV. It’s okay to blink while doing it.
When to do it?
Only throughout safe hours of the sun. First hour of sunrise and the last hour of sunset. There’s no ultraviolet rays at these times. Never sun gaze in the afternoon, it may damage your eyes.
How long to it?
About 15 minutes in total. When we begin looking at the sun, after some time our thoughts disappears. Everything within the background gets blurred and turns dark. Only the Sun remains visible. Do it as per your convenience. If you miss in the morning, then do it in the evening. You can also do it both times.
Some day if because of clouds or due to some inevitable work, you miss it, don’t get upset. Re-start it once more from the next day. Be consistent to find amazing benefits.
If possible while Sun gazing, stand straight barefooted on the ground. Earth is holding the power of sunlight for thousands of years. Earth will transfer that to your body through your feet.
Do not wear any glasses or contact lenses while sun gazing.
When we stare at the Sun, our eyes receive powerful photons of energy from the sun. They go to the brain and from there to your entire body. As a result, it benefits whole body. You’ll have a sun charged body.
Sun gazing is free for all.
