Brain Tip of the Week: Get Outside

Happy Labor Day, Superheroes!

What are you doing today? Are you spending time with family? Are you enjoying the last day of a trip?

However you’re celebrating your national holiday, I urge you to take advantage of our last summer holiday, follow my Brain Tip of the Week and get outside! After all, it’s going to start getting cold again soon.

Nowadays, we spend most of our days indoors staring at computers. But our migration indoors has mostly taken place in the last century or two. For countless millennia, our brains and bodies evolved for a life in which we spent much of our time outdoors.

So it should come as no surprise that going outside is incredibly good for us. We’ve talked before about the many physical benefits of communing with nature, and these benefits extend to our brains, too. Going outside improves our creative thinking and short-term memory. It helps our brains focus and de-stress. And getting outside regularly as you age is associated with greater function in later life.

So this week, do your brain a favor and get outside! It doesn’t matter if you’re out in the mountains or at a park in the middle of a city. Both will do you good.
