Good Luck.
A new report says living a city makes it harder people to concentrate. The research found that people who live rural areas can focus better than people urban areas. The study is Goldsmiths College, which is part the University of London. Head researcher Dr Karina Linnell and her team studied how two groups people did the same "thinking tasks". The team went to a remote part Namibia, southwest Africa, to study the Himba tribe. Himba people live a very basic life the desert, doing traditional farming. The team also studied members the same tribe who had moved the nearest town. Dr Linnell said the tribe who lived the desert did much better the tests than those the town.

Dr Linnell's research may change the way companies operate. the future, workers may relocate cities to live and work the countryside. Linnell said there are too many things around us the city that stop us thinking about one thing a long time. This means we do not work our best. She asked: "What if, example, companies realised certain tasks would be better carried by employees based outside the urban environment where their concentration ability is better?" The past century has seen billions people move the countryside to big cities. If Dr Linnell's research is true, this century might see many those people return the great outdoors.
