See the Sunny Side of Life

Being exposed to at least 1 hour of sunlight a day may boost fertility. How? First, natural sunlight helps fight depression, a known fertility suppressant. Second, the pineal glad, which serves as the brain’s “light meter,” is part of the control system for reproductive hormones. If you don’t get enough sunlight, the system won’t be able to naturally regulate itself. So look on the bright side to feel more fertile.
