Living in rural areas better for mental health than living in the city
If you want to feel better, and you can afford it, move to a greener environment. Swap the crowded city for the barren countryside. Well, you'll need to learn how to defend yourself against deadly squirrels and starlings, and maybe even carnivorous grasshoppers. Every time you have to go to Wallmart, you will have to fight the elements. But on the other hand, your mental health will improve.
The researchers divided their study participants into two groups. One group moved to a greener environment, for example exchanging a house in the city for a house in a village. The other group made the opposite move.
Of course, the researchers adjusted their data for other factors, such as home size, travel time, age and income.
