Unable to focus? You might be suffering from Urbanoverdosis

11 Sep

UrbanoverdosisWhile it’s long been recognized that city life is exhausting, research suggests that busy urban cities actually dull our thinking. Just being in an urban environment, has been found to impair our basic mental processes.

Why you ask? One of the main forces at work is the stark lack of nature in most urban environments. Even fleeting glimpses of nature improve brain performance and creativity, because they provide a mental break from over-stimulus and interruption of our thoughts.

People have tried everything from consuming mass amounts of red bull to redesigning their office layouts to improve cognitive performance, but it seems the most effective stimulus can be found in our nearest green space.

If you’re looking to fill this prescription for nature’s brain medicine and your city is out-of-stock, come visit us in Victoria, we have ample supply.
