“Today, the practice is so common that it’s known as ‘uitwaaien.’ It ‘literally translates to outblowing,’ explains Caitlin Meyer, a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam’s Department of Dutch Linguistics. ‘It’s basically the activity of spending time in the wind, usually by going for a walk or a bike ride.'” In Nautilus, Alice Fleerackers shares The Simple Dutch Cure for Stress. (Basically, you just have to go outside and be in the wind. As a bonus, in cities like Amsterdam and San Francisco, you can usually get a pretty decent contact high out there.) As Meyer explains: “Uitwaaien is something you do to clear your mind and feel refreshed—out with the bad air, in with the good.” (If you’re indoorsy like me, start with cracking a window and take it from there.)
