" What you need is a workout that involves involuntary attention. This type of attention requires no extra work on your brain’s part. You use it when you notice the cherry blossoms or the beauty of Rock Creek Park. It doesn’t take any extra effort to notice the pretty things; you just do it. According to the researchers at University of Michigan, natural environments are much better than urban environments at restoring and improving cognitive functioning. A natural environment gives the directed-attention part of your brain some vacation time, allowing it to replenish. “Simple and brief interactions with nature can produce marked increase in cognitive control,” according to the researchers. The best part? The participants in the study were walkers, not runners. For most people, walking is a more practical option."
