Walking, it’s good for your brain

A plethora of new studies have demonstrated that mental and physical health are both benefited by spending time outdoors (not the best news for PhD students finishing their dissertation (cough, me)).

One example: a cognitive neuroscience study demonstrating the neural signature of walking through nature.

Read the paper here, or the Washington Post article summarizing the findings here.

And get off your computer for a few minutes and go for a nice long stroll through your closest natural habitat.
