Sparking Innovative Ideas Through Fresh Air and Movement

While it may seem like common sense, fresh air and movement can help our minds and bodies gain new vitality. When you want to spark innovative ideas, skip the coffee break or snack break. Instead, breathe in some outdoor air and move your body! Whether you crack open a window for some airflow, or you head outside for a quick walk, or you even visit the gym for some exercise, you have an abundance of options when it comes to getting the blood flowing, as well as the ideas going.

What Fresh Air Can Do for You

Fresh air really does a body good. Research studying the effects of trees and forests on air quality and human health in the United States showed that trees and forests removed 17.4 million tons of air pollution in 2010, thereby preventing 850 deaths and 670,000 respiratory symptoms. Open those windows and breathe in that air.

As an added benefit, heading outdoors makes you feel more alive. It’s like an instant invigorator. Studies show that being outdoors is associated with greater vitality enhanced by the natural elements of your outside environment.

Move Your Body

According to a study published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, regular aerobic activity reduces anxiety and positively impacts a number of biological and psychological mechanisms. If you need all of your brainpower to focus on your ideas and not on your anxious thoughts, an aerobic workout might do the trick.

Exercise can also serve as a substitute for antidepressants and psychological therapy in the treatment of depression, according to another study. Anxiety and depression can rob thinkers of time and ideas. Exercise may be the antidote, allowing your mind to come up with new thinking.
