Fed up at work? A study* has found that when we’re exposed to sunlight and nature, we experience better moods, higher job satisfaction and more commitment to our employer.
The findings suggest that nature works as a buffer against stress and anxiety.
Working near greenery was found to promote a greater appreciation of your future and responsibilities.
Even changing your countryside vista, or buying a desk plant, can have similar effects.
