Advice That Rocks: Get Outside

This 1974 gem from Robert Palmer perfectly evokes the ennui of the modern professional worker. The lyrics describe the frustration of being stuck, with no way forward but the slog. 

The tempo and Palmer’s buttery vocals add a tangible feeling to the song’s intentionally depleted energy. Best of all, Palmer offers the perfect antidote: get outside.


As it turns out, Palmer was way ahead of his time. Contemporary scientists would approve. Give him a listen, and consider these benefits of the great outdoors:

Trust the science, and get outside -- on behalf of your physical health, your psychological wellbeing, and your performance at work.

The world outside your office is simply irresistible.*
