Calling in Sick to Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Have You Ever Called in Sick to Spend Time Outside?

I don't know about you, but the weather where I live has been absolutely divine of late. I can hear the sunshine calling my name and inviting me run, bike, hike, sail, kayak — anything to celebrate Spring. In a recent survey, completed oddly enough by Degree antiperspirant, 40 percent of the woman responded that they have called sick to work just to hang out in the great out-of-doors. I am not sure if that number seems high or low, so I wanted to conduct my own informal survey here on FitSugar. I am curious if you've desperately craved some vitamin D, aka the sunshine vitamin, that you have taken a mental health day to commune with Mother Nature?
