We spend a third of our day, at least, in offices that aren’t always conducive to productivity and mental health—some are even actively hurting us.

Studies have also shown that natural light can help elevate productivity. So why not combine them?

An office comprised of an open green field with pods scattered about would work just about right for me – at least when it’s not raining.
