        If You’re Planning A Move:
          It can be helpful to consider properties in a greener
        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.
          This American study also shows living in close
        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.

        Flung Wild Place:
          Those green spots close to home and work also count!
        As long as they’re safe and accessible, seeking refuge
        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.
