Can Sun exposure help with Depression?

We do know that on a rainy and gloomy day, our mood maybe a bit lower than on a day when it is sunny.  There is a term "seasonal depression" which is used to describe this phenomenon.

Hence, a little bit of sun each day can be therapeutic for your mood.  Too much sun will not be good for your skin obviously so balance is the key here just like everything in life.

Early morning Sun stimulation may also help with sleep patterns which in turns will help with your mood.
