Walking In A Park Reduces Brain Fatigue, Study Says

If you've ever had to work crazy hours (or simply work with dedication) or study for an exam, then you know exactly what "brain fatigue" feels like. It's that distracted and forgetful feeling you get when you've overwhelmed or just beat.

When I feel overwhelmed, I always take a walk though the woods and in my gardens. Revitalizing!

It does seem this should be intuitive knowledge, but I think most have lost touch with nature. For many city and suburban dwellers, park are not nearby so they drive to the park, walk for awhile, get back in traffic and stress. *sigh*

I find walking in a park or in the countryside incredibly soothing.

I don't need a ridiculous, expensive study to know that walking in a park reduces brain fatigue.

For me, walking any where helps to clear
my mind. Yesterday, had a very long
stroll on the beach. Felt wonderful.

Not only brain fatigue, but, it is encouraged for insomniacs.

love a walk in a park and even more so if there's a pond or stream ☺

This makes sense - I think we probably knew it already, but this is one of those things that we should be reminded about frequently!

Walking in the park is the best anti-stress remedy, especially when you hear the singing of birds.
