In a new study led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), people who commute through natural environments report better mental health.
The Study included:
- 3,599 participants from Spain, the Netherlands, Lithuania and the UK
- Cycling to work has enormous health benefits, both physically and mentally.
- Reduction in stress by as much as 52%.
- Commuting through natural environments on a daily basis had on average a 2.74 point higher mental health score
Positive Health Effects of the Natural Outdoor Environment in Typical Populations in Different Regions in Europe project (PHENOTYPE) incorporated this particular project.
Natural Environments were defined as all public and private outdoor spaces that contain ‘green’ and/or ‘blue’ natural elements such as street trees, forests, city parks and natural parks/reserves, and also included all types of waterbodies.
