Sun Gazing

Discussion in 'Optimal Kids' started by healthy2015, Oct 3, 2022.

  1. Hi
    Will it be okay for my 5 year old to do 2 minutes of sun gazing within the first 20 minutes of sun rise?

    Minutes and sun raising depends highly on latitude.
    It is better to discuss angle between your eyes and sun against horizontal plane.
    First part of sunrise is all red. Personally it takes minimal effort to look at the sun directly when it is red.
    If the 2 minutes that you are talking about, is within that time, no problem at all.

    Later on, when the sunlight gets whiter it is still ok to look at it directly.
    When sun gets really bright, personally I do not look directly at the sun, but slightly below it.
    When standing on the beach in eastern part of USA
    or in the land where you have clear 10 - 20 miles horizon,
    Good few minutes before actual sunlight, you already know that sunlight is coming, all around you is red.
    Draw line going from your feet (or eyes) toward the sun. That is line #1.
    Stay in place, do not move.
    When you actually see complete sun,
    Draw another line (line #2) from your eyes toward the sun, but do that when
    the angle between line #1 and line #2 has 30 degree angle.
    That is the time when UVB starts showing up. (Vitamin D production starts)

    (Small) correction.
    As the sun comes up, it travels up and West.
    It would be more accurately to rotate line #1 by the amount that sun travels.
    From zero to 30 degree is the most valuable time from pov of adjusting
    Circadian rhythm
    melatonin (from pineal gland as a source)
    sleep duration, sleep problems

    You may also bathe him , with sun charge water
    Also give him that water to drink that primes the body to use sun as primary source of energy intake
