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
