It's official: City parks make us happy
from The Conversation
Spending time with nature in our cities' parks and gardens can improve individual satisfaction in life and make us less aggressive, anxious and stressed. So isn't it time we placed access to nature alongside good health, feeling secure, satisfying employment and positive social relationships as key routes to happiness? A recent study from the University of Exeter links green space to happiness. Earlier studies indicating the importance of urban nature for general and psychological health were unable to control for individual personality differences that affect happiness.
