Nowadays, we see people walking around the streets on their phones, as well as students studying in the library with laptops instead of books. Indeed, technology has taken over the lives of many people today.

Most people see staying indoors in a positive light, but, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)’s latest reports, there are 4.3 million deaths per year globally due to indoor air pollution exposure. So, we might as well get out for fresh air and some outdoor action!
