The average working American spends 1/3 of their week (Monday-Friday) at work.
Most likely sitting at a desk, staring at a computer screen, in a room with fluorescent lighting, possibly sans windows lacking any natural light.
And if you eat lunch in the office, that’s 40 hours a week that you’re spending indoors. Add that to the 40 hours of sleep you should be getting. That leaves you with 40 hours of “personal” time throughout the work week.
“When we slow down, stop the busywork, and take in beautiful natural surroundings, not only do we feel restored, but our mental performance improves too.”Florence Williams, The National Geographic
Life is full of stressful moments no doubt about it, however it’s how you deal with those moments that jeopardize your sense of calm and productivity. We become overwhelmed when we can’t focus on the task at hand and struggle to see the answers right in front of us.
Scientists say that walking increases creativity by 60%, even if it’s just around the office. Furthermore, “researchers from the University of Edinburgh say that taking a walk through green spaces can lessen your brain fatigue, and scientists have long found that exposure to the sun can alleviate feelings of sluggishness and boost productivity.”
“When we get closer to nature—be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree—we do our overstressed brains a favor.”Florence Williams, The National Geographic
