HEALTH EFFECTS

We are facing a global challenge. Health and well-being are debated like never before and the physical and mental stress that today's connected society brings results in more people becoming ill with mental illness and stress-related illnesses. In more recent time, mental illness has increased amongst young people who mainly spend their time indoors. In Sweden, about 35,000 people are signed off from work due to severe stress. Insomnia, tiredness and anxiety are the main problems and many people find it difficult to recover. You get recovery by staying in restorative environments, such as outdoor stays and nature experiences. The Bug contributes to a sustainable working life.
