The workplace can be stressful. Going outside can help reduce this stress by lowering your resting heart rate, offering a break from thinking about work problems, and helping the brain produce endorphins, which are neurotransmitters responsible for regulating mood.
When a person takes a walk outside, breathing fresh outdoor air actually improves brain function, especially if they are cooped up in an office most of the day. A great suggestion for better work performance is to take a walk outside of the office during breaks!
Spending time outdoors with natural scenery has been proven to improve brain function such as concentration. In studies, children with ADHD who spent the majority of their leisure time outdoors in green spaces showed fewer symptoms of ADHD than their counterparts, even while performing the same task.
