Let the Sunshine In! How to Move Your Office Outdoors

September 30, 2021

Our surroundings impact our mood. That’s just a proven fact. And if you’re doubtful, be mindful of the way your mood changes the next time you walk into a messy house, and the culprits are nowhere to be found. However, it’s not just at home. Workplace environments can also impact a person’s mood, stress level, and overall health and wellbeing.

As businesses return to the office, many are creating outdoor workspaces as an innovative way to provide a better workplace experience.
