the human body needs some sunlight on our skin to produce vitamin D, and often a lot of people are somewhat deficient in vitamin D, especially in places with cold winters, due to our modern habits of wearing clothes and staying inside more. So your body is kind of biologically programmed to feel good when you are around things that are good for you, like the sun which provides warmth and vitamin D

Sunshine lifts our mood by boosting serotonin, a feel-good brain chemical, and regulates sleep by helping produce melatonin at night.
