Remember when you were a kid and you were put in time-out by your parents whenever you misbehaved? Don't you just wish you could do that to adults? Well now, thanks to Sweden, there is. It's a tiny glass cabin surrounded by nature designed to help people chill-out when they're super stressed out. Think of it as rehab for those of us who are on the verge of losing it because of work, debt, in-laws, you name it. For many, this 72-hour cabin program could mean the end of the old stressed out you, and hello to the brand new chillaxed you!

If Mother Nature can be a cure for stress, then this Swedish glass cabin might be your solution.

It’s like a gateway to peace and happiness, but not a whole lot of privacy as you can tell from the glass ceiling and walls. Plus, there isn’t a whole lot of wiggle room either.

To see if it works, Sweden is sending 5 extremely stressed out folks to this chillout cabin.

The goal is to see if these people, who have extremely stressful jobs, can actually learn how to chill inside the cabin surrounded by the beautiful scenery of paradise.

The 72 Hour Cabin program is studying the effects of nature on people.

It’s their hope that it’ll help them to understand how nature affects people physically and psychologically when they’re leading stressful lives.

You may not be aware of this, but Swedish people have a unique relationship with nature.

This could explain why everyone there is so calm and collected all the time. So the study is intended to analyze that relationship in the hopes of encouraging others around the world to do the same.

Sweden isn't judging those who are stressed out, but it does want to help.

By familiarizing visitors with the bond that the locals have with their surrounding environment, these participants will learn how to lead a better quality of life.

The study is being led by Walter Osika and Cecilia Stenfors, two researchers from the Karolinska Institute.

The case study will delve into how the freedom to roam affects people in general, usually for the better. If it works, they intend to influence their idea in areas of the world where high-end stress is over the top.

The lucky participants come from all over the world.

There’s a broadcaster from London, a cab driver from Paris, a New York event planner, a German police officer, and a travel journalist from Britain. Everyone will be asked to spend three days in their own individual cabin.

The cabins are located in the idyllic Henriksholm island in West Sweden.

They’ll have no access to the outside world in order to allow them to relax, hike, fish, cook, swim, and de-stress in the glass cabins designed by Jeanna Berger and built by Fridh & Hells Bygg AB Construction Company. The results will be presented in October, and we simply can’t wait!
