[WORLD NEWS] Take regular trips to the park for your health
Have you been visiting any parks or green spaces in your neighborhood?
The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare have been researching about the positive impact. The Finnish researchers surveyed 16,000 residents from Helsinki and surrounding areas by asking them how often they visited green spaces and also collected information on how many prescription drugs they took.
Through the survey they found that, dropping into a park, community garden or other urban green space between three and four times a week can cut people’s chances of taking medication for anxiety or depression by a third and this also extends to physical health.
The UN estimates that by 2030, more than 60% of the world’s population will be living in cities. (Currently, more than half of the world’s population live in cities)
As you can see from the research, the lack of access to nature has a detrimental impact on our physical and mental health.
How about taking a walk in the park, go on a hike, go to a garden or any other urban green spaces that are close to your daily activities? Maybe three or four times can be difficult at first, but I’m sure once you begin, your body will feel the great benefit and you’d want to go more often!
