Need a quick burst of calm and happiness? Look at a scenic view. According to a new study published in Scientific Reports, when people take breaks from their schedules to enjoy a view of nature, they are happier and less stressed when they get back to work.
Even if you don’t live or work in a particularly scenic area, it’s still possible to take advantage of the mental benefits of looking at nature. Set your screensaver to a beautiful photo from your last trip, print that same photo out and keep it handy at your desk, or create your own little view of greenery with a few small desk plants.
