Healthy EDGE!

S stands for Sunshine.

Sunshine provides the body with many benefits.  “Ellen White wrote in 1865 that the atmosphere of rooms that are not exposed to light and air “is poisonous, because it has not been purified by light and air.” Why? “Death-producing germs abound in dark, neglected corners, in decaying refuse . . . . Perfect cleanliness, plenty of sunlight, careful attention to sanitation in every detail of the home life, are essential to freedom from disease and to the cheerfulness and vigor of the inmates of the home. Selected Messages, book 2, p. 462; The Ministry of Healing, pp. 274, 276.




Students should be allowed to go out for recess for at least 15-20 minutes a day to get the precious rays of sunlight.



We will discuss sunlight in depth in one of our upcoming episodes of the Healthy EDGE, so stay tune.
