Spring is here, and with it comes the opportunity to enjoy more of the outdoors.
Fortunately for us, in Marvila we have several parks and gardens, including the beautiful Parque Ribeirinho Oriental, with the Tagus River running alongside, right in front of our office.
As the trees begin to blossom, the park comes alive, creating a beautiful and pleasant environment to walk, cycle around the neighbourhood or just stare at the river.
Having access to green spaces like this can be a lifesaver during the working day, giving us the opportunity to get out and take a break from our work, get some fresh air, and move our bodies.
But the benefits of spending time in green spaces go beyond taking a break from work. Being surrounded by nature can reduce stress levels, improve mood, and increase creativity and productivity.
Let’s be honest, we love our office but working all day between 4 walls can make us feel stuck and grey. So, the next time you’re feeling drained, get out of the office, take a picnic blanket and some snacks, and make the most of the green spaces that abound in Marvila and beyond.
Plus, who doesn’t love the smell of fresh flowers and the sight of trees in bloom? Your body and mind will thank you for it!
