If the only time you really get to yourself is when you are in the restroom, you are NOT getting enough "me-time".

You’re far from alone because the average American only gets five hours of “me time” in a week — that’s just 43 minutes a day.

Maybe this is why most of us say we are stressed. A lack of me time has a negative effect on your mood.

Experts say...

...current events, jobs, partners, kids, and too much noise are the top five things that prevent people from getting enough R&R.

The answer surprisingly enough is to spend more time outdoors.

There are so many benefits to relaxing outside, rather than inside. Medical research has shown that spending time in nature can reduce symptoms of mental and physical ailments and boost the body’s production of immune cells and cancer-fighting proteins. Other studies show that spending just 20 minutes in nature can greatly reduce a person’s stress levels...

Think about it, its' human nature to spend time outdoors and now that the weather is improving you have no excuse.
