Our daily habits may influence gravely the condition of our overall health.
For example the amount of time we are exposed to the sun daily plays an important role to our psychological condition but also to the state of our skin. Our skin becomes thinner with older age. Older people have been exposed to the sun for more years than younger people so they have a thinner skin. If for example we leave in southern climate and work outdoors we may be exposed to the sun a lot more than necessary and may damage our skin too quickly.
On the other hand Vitamin D is very beneficial for our mental health as it can help fight depression. This is why people that leave in Northern climates and are not exposed to the sun as much as they should do, are more likely to suffer from depression. If you want to know more factors that influence our health that can be controlled by our daily habits, read the following article.

…Most educational and government institutions around the world have a very poor track record when it comes to influencing the practical habits that keep their populations healthy. They say we are destined for disease depending on our genetics and biology without ever addressing some of the most significant determinants that shape our health.
1) What Your Skin Absorbs
Our skin’s production of vitamin D dramatically influences our health. It is influenced by age (people ages 65 and over generate only one-fourth as much as people in their 20s do), skin color, and sunscreen use (slather on sunscreen in the summer and you’re guaranteed to eliminate prime opportunities to soak in Vitamin D). Spraying toxic bug repellents, creams and other cosmetics influence your immunity. Children have a large body surface area and tender skin, making them more prone to cross-skin absorption. People over 65 tend to have thinner skin and have had years of exposure to sun, which also makes their skin absorb more of these chemicals. The last thing you should be doing after 60 is applying cosmetics, moisturizers (unless they are natural), makeup, and using conventional shampoos and conditioners. Researchers have discovered specific molecular signaling events by which vitamin D via skin production prevents inflammation. In experiments, many researchers have shown that low levels of Vitamin D, comparable to levels found in millions of people, failed to inhibit the inflammatory cascade–a series of rapid biochemical events which propagates and matures the inflammatory response within the immune system.
2) What You Ingest
These days, what you are not eating is far more important than what you are. Artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, emulsifiers, sweeteners have saturated the food supply for more than four decades. Avoiding these ingredients goes a long way in at least preventing toxic overloads. Trying to consume organic produce and avoiding glyphosate driven GMOs may very well add many years to our lives. Some nutrients such as wheat and soy are practically unavoidable when eating any kind of processed foods and each is profoundly inflammatory, immunotoxic and neurotoxic. When most people remove these from their diets, they lose weight, decrease inflammation and often increase the functionality of their immune system. The nutritional quality of our foods influences the nutritional status and immune system of the nation. Eliminating vaccinations, medications and other artificially-manufactured substances only improve our health in the long-term. Although diet plays an integral role in the functioning of our immune system, it is only one of many elements which contribute to its full function.
3) What You Breathe
The health effects linked to exposure of even short-term fine particle pollution is highly detrimental to human health. They include nonfatal heart attacks..
