Sunlight and Mental Health
May 13, 2018

Did you know that sunlight can help battle depression?  Sunlight that goes through our eyes triggers the brain to release a hormone called serotonin.  Serotonin is a hormone thought to be responsible for mood boosting, and helping a person feel calm and focus.

ACL encourages its residents to go out and enjoy the sun.  Weather permitting, staff will lay out tables in the garden to serve lunch or dinner, arts and crafts, and games.  We also do field trips in the summer.  So how about a singing contest next time?  What do you think?
