Let Nature Rejuvenate You
New research shows that there are mental health advantages that come with spending time immersed in natural settings. Frequent technology use puts extraordinary strain on cognitive functions such as attention, problem solving, focusing, multitasking, and shifting between programs with different cognitive demands. Research indicates that exposure to natural settings seems to improve our ability to perform these tasks because of the restorative benefits offered by a radically different change of environment. A couple of days of downtime and communing with nature can give you a 50% boost in productivity!
