You should take more time to see the sunset because doing so can have beneficial mental health benefits.

Sunsets have many different meanings and symbolize different things in our lives. It can almost be like a sacred moment that repeats itself every day.

Why Are Sunset Beautiful?

Scientifically, the sun is low on the horizon, and sunlight passes through more air than during the day.  

More molecules in the atmosphere scatter the violet and blue light from our eyes, which we find hard to see, thus what we see is a beautiful yellow, orange, and red sunset.

What Does The Sunset Symbolize?

Sunsets symbolize the end or completion of a day, completion of the days’ tasks, and show the passing of time. When the sun sets, it is a reminder by nature of the forces of good and evil.
