Your workspace, whether it’s at home or in the office, may be wonderful. But even so, how often do you find yourself saying “I’m just going out for a breath of fresh air”? That little change to a different environment is therapeutic and energising.
The thing is, that outside space is useful for working too, with research research by Lenovo of 2,000 adults showed that being among nature improves wellbeing and increases productivity.
Of course, there’s a problem here: it’s hard to stay connected to the internet at any usable speed when you’re outside.
If only there were a laptop that connected to the internet using super-fast 5G – wouldn’t that be great? Well, now there is…
World’s first 5G-connected laptop
The world’s first 5G-connected laptop is the Lenovo Yoga 5G, an exciting device that allows full-speed online access from wherever you are, inside or out.
Working with Lenovo, psychologist Honey Langcaster-James says there are wellbeing benefits from spending 20 active minutes, 40 mindful minutes or 60 working minutes in a nature-rich environment each day – and doing so can also enhance productivity overall. Lenovo calls this the Recommended Daily Nature Allowance.
Studies have shown that working in environments that include exposure to green spaces, for example, while doing something that requires your creative juices to be involved, can make a difference to mental health as well as improve that creativity.
Sitting outside using a lightweight, attractive laptop such as the Yoga 5G can be highly appealing, not just for the improved creativity, but also for peace of mind in other ways.
Secure and super-fast internet connection
For instance, with this laptop, for the first time, having a super-fast internet connection is not dependent on wi-fi. What’s more, avoiding public wi-fi is certainly more secure, which is reassuring in itself.
Research has shown that average office workers feel more productive if they spend just under half an hour of the working day outside. Before, that would have meant a period of poor connectivity, but not any more.
The research also shows that there’s a perception, by a majority of people, of a general improvement in mood after spending time outdoors.
There’s another reason for that. The Lenovo Yoga 5G has remarkable battery-life – a full 24 hours, so there’s no need to carry the power brick with you. It’s a powerful performer but also very quiet, thanks to its fanless design.
Finding those outdoor moments have benefits in so many ways: they are good for mind, body and soul. And now, with the arrival of the Yoga 5G, the online connection is as fast as – if not faster than – the best wi-fi can manage.
