A-Few-Lucky-People-Will-Get-to-Connect-With-Nature-in-a-Glass-Cabin

In an effort to help uncover why Sweden consistently ends up near the top of “best country to live in” and “best quality of life” lists, Visit Sweden is taking five individuals with high stress jobs and putting them in glass cabins for three days to study the effects being close to nature will have on them. The “72 Hour Cabin” will be done in partnership with two leading researchers, Walter Osika and Cecilia Stenfors, from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and focus on Ben Fogle (a broadcaster from London), Marilyne Didier (a taxi driver from Paris), Baqer Keshwani (an event-coordinator from New York), Steffi Tauscher (a police officer from Munich) and Chris Leadbeater (a journalist from London). Results of the study will be presented by the team in October, but it’s a pretty safe bet that everyone involved came out significantly less stressed out. Here’s hoping they leave the cabins up so we can rent them the next time we’re in the neighborhood.
