neighborhood. For this European study, researchers
spent three years tracking the mental health of people
who’d recently relocated to areas with plenty of green
space, as compared to those who moved to less foliaged
urban areas. Results showed that the former group “had
significantly better mental health in all three post-move
years,” and that those who moved to less green areas
experienced significantly worse mental health in the
years following their relocation.

proximity to green spaces to be associated with
significantly lower levels of symptomatology for
depression, anxiety, and stress. In short, you very well
might be happier living in a place where green spaces
are easily accessible.

in neighborhood parks, soccer fields, city trails, and
even friends’ backyards can do much to boost mental
wellness. Moreover, it’s OK if you’re not living in an
area that’s chock-full of parks and trails. Research shows
that quality trumps quantity – just one good park can
have positive benefits for the surrounding community.
Humans, after all, are social by nature and having a green
space in which to unwind and strike up friendships can
do wonders for one’s sense of well-being.
