Autumn has come. There’s no point denying it. The mornings are pretty chilly and we tend to stay at home more. But today, I would truly like to encourage you to GO OUTSIDE (and take your learning with you …:)
A few days ago I wrapped myself up, packed all the necessities and made the place in the photo above my office for the day. Surprisingly, I managed to complete every task I had set up for the day, plus I felt so much at peace.
Changing our working or learning environment can bring a totally new dimension to it. Our productivity increases when our mind is ready to process new information. I believe that limiting distractions can help us focus more and as a result remember things longer and better.
That is why I want you to try and give your learning routine a little twist once in a while.
The studies show that regular direct access to nature can:
increase self-esteem, improve concentration, learning, creativity, cognitive development, cooperation, flexibility and self-awareness.
Oh, boy! What a list! And I am sure it is not complete.
And while we’re on the topic of nature, there are two more things I recommend you to check out.
Ben travels around the world and meets people who have turned their backs on the rat race and set up home in some of the most remote and extraordinary parts of the world.
I am a huge fan of the series, not only because it is in English, but primarily because it is honest, moving and motivating. It emphasizes the connection with nature we all should have and makes you rethink your life and your daily choices.
I’m signing off now. Hope you have a great autumn.
