Closness to nature helps overcome stress.
Parks and gardens are an excellent preventative against depression, scientists have proven
People living in green
On average, residents of urban areas (within a radius of at least one kilometer of only 10% of green spaces) are one third more likely to suffer from depression than residents of "green" areas, 90% consisting of parks and gardens. But this is far from the only conclusion.
In addition to the mental harm of the "urban jungle" there is also a physical one. This is an increased risk of getting heart, respiratory, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal problems, digestive disorders and many other he alth problems. In "green" areas, their risk is much less.
"Our study shows the role of green spaces for human life, their benefits cannot be underestimated," says Dr. Yolanda Maas. “In the treatment of many diseases, which costs a lot of money, wildlife also has a significant positive effect.” So, victims of strokes and heart attacks are strongly advised to live in the bosom of nature, it stimulates them to move more.
