Spring has sprung and with warmer weather comes more chances to enjoy the outdoors.
As college students enter the final stretch of the semester, sometimes life can get stressful. Did you know that going outside can actually help relieve stress?
According to the Huffington Post, Judith Heerwagon, an environmental psychologist, said, "Just looking at a garden or trees or going for a walk, even if it's in your own neighborhood, reduces stress."
Not only does going outside reduce stress, it also helps with concentration. One study monitored children who were more active outside and children who spent more time indoors. The study showed that children who spent more time outside were better able to concentrate.
Losing concentration on schoolwork? Try going for a walk.
