tired after sunbathing

The real reason we get tired after sitting in the sunlight

It is almost summertime here in the States.

And that means it is time to bask in the sun.

So why do we get sleepy after sunbathing?

Most point to serotonin, sun stroke or Vitamin D overexposure…

But the fact is we get tired because our bodies are constantly working to keep cool.

Our body uses A LOT of energy restoring our temperature while we are baking in the sun.

Also, spending time in the sun dehydrates us.

So how do we regain our energy after sunbathing?

One surprising treatment is to have a salty snack to replace the sodium we lose while sweating.

Of course, a quick power nap helps out too.
