2. A clearer focus
Research shows that working out in the outdoors severely boosts focus and creates a clearer mind-set. This way you’ll benefit even more from those workouts. – Who would say no to that? – It also helps to clear your mind after a long day. And it can be easy! Just going for a run outside will suffice.
