Dear Will, have you ever heard about figure of speech? that´s an expression used in a different way, to give us a picture in our minds.
In this light, "doing something under the sun" is used in the sense of which activities are more usual to a group or to somebody in special, that is, the most likely or mundane thing to somebody. The everyday activity we fancy.

Nothing to do with people beaching all day, and tanning in the process!
Some examples of what I just explained, taken from the Bible:
5 The sun rises and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises.
