clipart-sunshine-Peileppe-spring“Heavenly sunshine” is more than an old gospel song; sunshine is therapeutic, healing, and preventative. The great thing is that, if you walk outdoors, you can get exercise, fresh air, and sunshine all at the same time!

During periods of low or no sunlight, diabetics may wish to take a vitamin D3 supplement, being careful not to overdose.
