Some Interesting Ways In Which Greenery Might Affect Your Mental & Physical Well-being

Human beings are a part of the giant ecosystem that and through the natural world, we have a connection to the Earth and its inhabitants.

This is probably why there seems to be an intuitive inclination in all of us to spend some time outdoors, either by taking a walk in a backyard garden or sitting in a park for a breath of fresh air.

Many of us may feel rejuvenated by the presence of nature or through the simple addition of greenery to our workplaces. The reasons for this may surprise you.


Science indicates that quality is important

Apparently, numerous studies by scientists over the years show that nature is the ultimate stress reliever. When greenery is incorporated into living spaces, you might find that social interactions are increased, physical exercise is encouraged and even mental illness can be gradually soothed. These effects seem to not be limited to long forest hikes or strolls through beaches that are miles away and research indicates that just about any kind of green space (whether coastlines, soccer fields or local parks) can all increase feelings of happiness and tranquillity as well as boost mental health.

However, certain qualities should be met if you are to see any of these benefits from green spaces. Some of these qualities? That the green space is accessible, clean and safe (otherwise the mood of visitors may not be so positively influenced). For instance, parks should be easy to reach, have plenty of good, natural lighting and clean enough for families to enjoy.

Another study by a group of researchers in the Netherlands found that people who think their local green spaces are accessible and usable had reported feeling more satisfied with their neighbourhood, regardless of how much green space they had. This indicates a quality over quantity approach to the positive effects of greenery.


A growing appeal for green buildings

The preservation of nature along with the expectation of more sustainable living places appears to have given rise to the green building concept which is growing in Malaysia too, with various bodies in the nation recognising the benefits and importance of green developments as a step forward towards a more eco-friendly future.

Developments like Rencana Royale TTDI are qualified for the GREENre building status, an initiative set up by REDHA in 2013 to promote sustainability in the property industry. Green rating tools such as this are spearheading a new level of sustainability and performance in developments in Malaysia.

They encourage an increase in green developments. These properties can be found designed to reduce pollution and the degradation of the environment as well as prioritise the protection of occupants’ health.

Rencana Royale’s design is in accordance with the Malaysian Government’s efforts to build sustainable developments and cleaner environments, by presenting a 13-storey commercial development in the heart of TTDI that includes corporate, garden, deluxe and executive suites for Malay owners.

Greenery is an integral part of the structure of Rencana Royale. Integrating state-of-the-art facilities with lush elements of nature, it’s a development that caters to leisure as well as work. The incorporation of greenery here can instil a sense of calm and help maintain physical as well as mental wellbeing.


Consider adding a tinge of green to your humble abode. If you don’t know where to start, find a development that has effectively implemented the right qualities of green living, so that you and your family can reap the rewards as you live, work and play in comfort, style and an environment that prizes peace and tranquillity.

Tips For Optimizing Your Commercial Space

Working online? Here are some tips for optimising your commercial space

The remote worker was once unique, different, the cowboys of labour and yet now, a surge in digital capabilities appears to have led to normalisation.

Productivity levels also seem to have been maintained with some instances displaying an increase in work productivity when employees get to manage their own schedules and enjoy flexibility at work.

There may be challenges, however. When dealing with working online/working remotely, environments may differ (such as with open office plans) and workers may deal with a lack of resources when working outside of the confines of a traditional workplace.

Fortunately, this modern era can also offer an assortment of options for those who desire to work online or who have flexible working schedules. If you’re looking to begin a remote working lifestyle but don’t know where to start (or would like to know how you may be able to further optimise your space for better work/productivity), here are a few tips that could help you.


Utilise modern facilities

Fortunately for you, many developers can be found seeking to accommodate remote workers by providing them with as much convenience as possible. Prioritising the needs of people from different walks of life (including busy remote workers) should be a part of how today’s developments are built.

In the past, people may not have understood (or even liked) the idea of shared working spaces/coworking space. You might find this gradually changing as a growing tendency towards a multi-layered experience surfaces.

You might find that high-tech trends have contributed to the transition. Facilities like conference rooms, grand meeting rooms and event halls for various business-oriented activities can be found in many developments. Rencana Royale TTDI is one such development which features many essential elements and conveniences that enable online work. Be mindful of which developments you decide on because the space that you choose to work in/run your online business from can determine your ability to work remotely.


Reduce the distractions

As a remote worker, discipline is often up to you. Some of the biggest challenges you may face as a remote/online worker are the distractions that surround you. You could be jolted out of your ‘focus zone’ and drawn away from the task at hand.

Daily life may often be filled with so many other things beyond deadlines and urgent assignments and striking a balance can get complicated.

Buy a noise-cancelling headset with a mute button so you can continue with your video calls uninterrupted or establish a schedule to divide your work time from the rest of the day where other activities are done.

Look for spaces that are designed to prioritise privacy so you can focus on getting things done in specific sections which have been established to foster peace and quiet.


Incorporate brainstorming sessions

Video calls, message groups and business meeting apps can all be great tools for remote workers to virtually communicate with their teams, however, physical meetups may still add value to the productivity equation.

Sometimes, getting together with your team to whiteboard an idea or engage in brainstorming sessions while everyone is physically present, can be a way to really get the ball rolling. Call for a meeting once a month or gather around in a cafe nearby if need be. If there’s one in your compound, you can invite the rest of your team there.

Many developments have facilities that can accommodate quick meetings in conducive environments, particularly if they include things like meeting rooms and event halls for small (or large) get-togethers. Watch areas like TTDI for properties which are fostering the ability to optimise your remote working experience and get the best out of your blended/innovative lifestyle.


Don’t underestimate spaciousness

Limited space may slowly become a nuisance that you have to deal with and this can be especially true if you work in a compact space, have many coworkers or if you require multiple types of equipment to fulfil your corporate duties. The solution can be simple. Refer to interior design websites to get an understanding of how best to set up a space and optimise it for remote working.

6 Interesting Coffee In TTDI

Flat white not enough? Here are 6 interesting coffees in TTDI and the cafes where you can find them

A good cuppa can really make your day feel like it’s turned around…

The art of caffeine has come a long way from when it was simply a plain, bland elixir used by the everyday working man for a jolt of energy. Today, coffee is a lifestyle and a movement. It can be defined through flavour, colour, shape and size and has changed to match the preferences of a newer generation.

We have younger crowds who love their coffees crafted, customised and creatively inspired and, on top of this, they love to enjoy their daily dosage of caffeine in the cosy and intricately designed confines of upmarket cafes.

To match demand, businesses have popped up all across KL and you can find a range of establishments focused on a fantastic assortment of coffee choices, all clustered within the humble township of TTDI.

Look forward to a homely vibe accompanied by great food (including a healthy yet creative assortment of choices) as well as tasty beverages.

Aether serves another option you might not have heard of – Doi Chaang coffee (cultivated on Thai mountains). Ingredients are hand-picked and sun-dried, while profits are shared fairly with thousands of indigenous farmers working in ecologically sustainable Thai plantations so while you sip on this cuppa, enjoy the knowledge that you’re doing something for a great cause.

Opening Hours: Monday-Sunday, 8 am-9 pm. (Closed on Tuesdays)

Dotty’s spots a French-themed interior which you might find has an authentic Parisian vibe but. There’s also the incredible menu selection, featuring Salted Egg Yolk Cronuts which are freshly made. A signature beverage/dessert that you should try here is the doughnut latte. Its name is pretty self-explanatory but what is it actually? A hot doughnut is topped with ice cream while latte is poured on top of it. You may barely even consider it coffee but if it’s creativity you’re looking for, you might want to consider giving it a shot!

Artisan Roast Coffee

This classic, Western-style establishment is where you can find expert baristas and a soothing atmosphere. Think of the Artisan Roast Coffee experience as being made up of good coffee and scrumptious breakfast grub.

Try the cafe’s signature Mocha which uses cocoa powder instead of chocolate syrup and is topped with intricate milk patterns.
