Feeling sluggish? The solution may involve you getting outside the box that you’re in – literally. A series of studies have found that simply enjoying nature will boost your energy and vitality!

“Nature is fuel for the soul” says Richard Ryan, lead author of the studies published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology and a Professor of Psychology at the University of Rochester. In fact, being outside in nature for just 20 minutes each day was enough to significantly  boost vitality levels!"
