World Environment Day — 6 benefits of studying in nature

Did you know that being in nature helps you study better?

This is the main reason why our training centres are in scenic, distraction-free locations such as Wyboston Lakes. Set on 380 acres of land, our main UK training centre features a wide range of facilities, including conference rooms, training rooms, hotels, restaurants, and leisure facilities.

Being in nature can have numerous benefits for those wishing to study, both physical and mental. Here are some of them:

1. Being in nature reduces stress and anxiety

According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, spending time in green spaces can help lower the stress hormone cortisol in the body.

2. Being in nature helps you focus better

According to the American Psychological Association, being in nature can help students focus and pay attention better. Studies have also shown that exposure to natural environments can improve cognitive function, including memory and attention span.

3. Being in nature can help boost creativity

Aside from being inspiring in its own right, nature can help boost creativity and innovation. According to numerous studies, being in natural environments can enhance creative problem-solving and imaginative thinking. This may be why Steve Jobs recommended it.

4. Being in nature helps increase physical activity

As spending time in nature often involves physical activity such as walking, jogging, or cycling, it can improve cardiovascular health, which, in turn, helps the brain work better.

5. Being in nature can improve your mood

Regardless of weather conditions, being in nature improves mood and well-being. According to numerous studies, exposure to green spaces can increase feelings of happiness and reduce symptoms of depression. On sunny days, this effect is enhanced with a boost of Vitamin D!

6. Studying in nature can boost cognitive performance, leading to enhanced learning

According to recent studies, the complex interaction between our minds and the natural world can improve our cognitive function, making studying easier and more efficient, with better information retention and improved academic performance.
