Here are three key takeaways from the episode:

  1. Improve body image by addressing internal issues of the heart, instead of just physical appearance.
  2. Vitamin D is essential for overall health, and the sun is the easiest way to get it. However, individualized, safe sun exposure is important and may require help such as an app like D Minder.
  3. Morning sun exposure can stimulate the production of serotonin, which can regulate sleep cycles and improve mood all of which can help you feel better about your body and improve your body image.
