The 72 Hour Cabin

The 72 Hour Cabin project asked five people with stressful jobs (including broadcaster Ben Fogle) to live in bespoke glass cabins in Sweden and take part in various outdoor activities as well as living off grid. The results are unsurprisingly pretty positive - all five showed a significant decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, and an increase in levels of well-being and creativity (full details here).

Co-leader of the project Walter Osika, Researcher in Stress and Associate Professor at Karolinska Institutet, said: "I am positively surprised by the results and it shows that a Swedish ‘close to nature’ lifestyle can improve people’s well-being, at least in a short run. We saw a 70 percent decrease of stress, which is considerable"

You can now also book one of the cabins to try it out for yourself at Visit Sweden.
