More Green Space = Happier People

Research shows that living near green space is more likely to make you happier and has a positive effect on your mental health.

The study from University of Wisconsin-Madison looked at 2,500 residents and collected data on their depression, anxiety and stress levels. They also analyzed where these residents lived and the ”vegetation cover” and found that the areas with more green space and more trees created happier people. The words “significant and sizeable” were used to describe the association between green space and happiness. 🌿🌱🌳
