Our bodies are designed to be exposed to sunlight radiation every day, if it is not then we quickly become unhealthy in every system of the body. Just a few quick examples is your immune system will start failing you(this is crucial to save you from cancer!), your teeth will start decaying either slowly or rapidly depending on your diet, your bones will weaken, your ligaments may start to fail you, you are at a risk for developing movement disorders, you are at risk of developing crooked teeth, your sex drive and motivation will drop off, you will be prone to depression, your muscles will resist improvement and strength, your energy levels will be dragging the ground, and so on.
Even on cloudy days you are still absorbing this radiation, so still get out as much as you can and make playing outdoors part of your life for now on.
This is not only important for adults, but for babies as well, though be very careful with babies and they do not need as much as an adult.
Naturally they would obtain sun exposure too, and human milk does not contain vitamin D, which is interesting in itself.
Allow your children of all ages to be exposed to sunlight, without burning(accomplish this through building up time in the sun, not through toxic sun screen), as well as when you're pregnant make sure to not go low on sun exposure.
Sunlight is how our bodies naturally gain the hormone called Vitamin D.
The natural way is of course superior to oral supplements, and actual sunlight gives you radically higher doses than oral methods.
Also, sun exposure on your skin triggers other results that taking vitamin D does not, so you really can't trade the sun for a laboratory concocted vitamin D solution.
Some research suggests oral Vitamin D supplements are harmful, and even give the opposite results as sun exposure, and suppresses the human immune system.
Do not let it slip from your mind that sunlight is key for every part of your body, YHWH has designed us to be out in it or else we start to suffer.
Modern people have been misled about sun exposure, and the bad information they are holding to causes them to harm their health thinking they are helping it.
There are a number of data charts that show disease rates have a direct link to sun exposure, and those people living in colder climates are at much higher risk of suffering from diseases.
I find it interesting the humble poor people through history who had to work outside even as oppressed slaves were being blessed with health giving nutrients, while the lazy wealthy people who refused to do such work were suffering from poor health and degrading.
Do not set yourself up high, be humble, and do what Elohim has intended you to do.
Also temperature has an effect on our health, it is best to be in warm temperatures, cold weakens our bodies and the immune system, though the body is able to adjust to the different temperatures quite well.
Though the body may transform itself and get better at keeping you warm in colder weather, we in cold areas still always tend to go from one temperature like inside of a house, to a much lower temperature, shocking your body and making it cold faster than it is warming itself, for a period.
It is well known that cold weather makes people sick, and the overuse of AC has the same effect on us, but to a lesser degree that is not as noticeable and is more silent at what it's doing in our body.
If you choose to, or have to, live in an area that gets cold, then make sure your home is properly insulated.
Poor insulation and many air leaks will cause you to feel cold all winter long.
If you live in a modern house that does not insulate well, and use electric heating, your electric bill will soar as it constantly has to run to keep your house heated.
Not only this, but the more the electric heat runs, the more moisture it removes from the air in your house and this low humidity can cause multiple problems including health problems.
Your body will dry out and become vulnerable, it may cause premature aging and damage airways.
Low humidity also causes you to feel cold. 79F with 20% humidity can freeze you in the Winter and make you miserable since you can't seem to stay warm without a lot of uncomfortable clothes, yet 79F with 100% humidity in the Summer can make you feel very warm. So temperature reading is not the only thing to consider when trying to keep your body warm and healthy.
You can also reduce the amount of windows you have, and if not permanently, you can just fill them with insulating material, and then remove it in the warm season.
I myself have a door that transfers cold from outside like it's wide open. I'm fine with this door in the Summer, but in Winter I seal this door off and do not use it.
A warning about increasing your temperature in your environment, if you start living in a nicely warm temperature, modern life can start showing you some issues.
For example, I like it in the 90Fs, and acclimate to this sort of weather in the summer, my house is often warmer inside then it is outside on a hot summer day even, yet I am used to it and it's comfortable to me since I allowed my body to adjust to that.
Most other modern people do not change their climate and comfort levels like this and try to survive in a temperature controlled environment, so if you acclimate to 100F weather, you are going to freeze when you go into a building where people are using A/C to reduce humidity and cool it down to 69F.
For this reason you may want to only increase your climate in steps to find one that works for you, but I myself like to go to extremes.
It also motivates me to be outdoors more often since I don't like spending too much time in what feels like a freezing environment.
It can feel bothersome when Americans are constantly acting like you are crazy or something is wrong with you when you find the air cold, but a huge plus to this point is you will save hundreds of dollars on A/C costs if you allow your body to acclimate and be comfortable in a hotter climate.
While being warm is important for our health, I wouldn't really say this means you must move to an area that is always hot as a volcano for best health(maybe to a big warmer area if you have long periods of cold). As too warm does put stress on the body just as too cold, but it's not likely that we are able to move to a place that always has the perfect climate where our body is neither stressing to recover and produce heat, or stressing to chill your internals.
The change from hot season over to cold season can be really enjoyable and a beautiful experience.
It can be refreshing for a period.
Gain experience at what helps you feel your best and perform the best, and stick with that.
It will most likely be much warmer than you previously thought once you finally decide to expose yourself to Summer weather.
Don't be one of those modern people who think 80F weather is deadly.
Heat becomes an issue and even deadly when you are not drinking enough water as you should be(this point is covered later too), and the modern ways of humans have them being very deficient in the critical nutrient water.
Also poor health and ingesting junk foods can cause people's body to struggle at maintaining body temperature making them freak out over gentle Summer weather.
Where you live will also determine how strong the sun radiation is, this also is something to keep in mind, and realize not all areas are the same so following one person's habits may not be best for you.
Acclimating to warmer temperatures will cause you to be slimmer and lighter. One of the methods your body uses to stay warm is increasing a certain kind of fat in your body that insulates and keeps you warm.
