How to Maintain Vitamin D while in Isolation


If you’ve lost count of how many days we’ve been in isolation for, it’s probably been too long! While we must follow government restrictions very seriously, we still need to keep an eye on our health and maintain our wellbeing.


One of the major impacts isolation may be having on our health is its interference of our vitamin D intake. We all know vitamin D plays a crucial role in maintaining strong and healthy bones, however, what you may not know is vitamin D has the ability to repair and rebuild skin.


So how do we get vitamin D? From sufficient exposure to sunlight! You may be thinking how can I get adequate exposure in the sun when we are in isolation? There are many ways we can absorb sunlight whilst still obeying government restrictions.


Here are a few:

  • If you’re lucky enough to have a front or back garden spend part of your day there, reading a book, having a meal, gardening or anything that you find comfort in.
  • Again, if you have an outdoor space in your home, you can do your exercise routine outside. Like yoga, pilates or aerobics.
  • Go for a short walk (alone or with only one other person outside of your household)


We’re lucky to live in a beautiful and sunny country like Australia, so for adequate vitamin D absorption we only need 15-30 minutes of sun a day. Try to avoid peak UV times such as midday and always wear SPF. Sunscreen protects from UVB light and will not prevent you from absorbing vitamin D.
