PLYMOUTH, England – So much of the modern life happens indoors. From offices to apartments or homes, most people today and in the age are in a closed room for most of the day. Spending more time outdoors has long been associated with a more positive way of thinking, but now research concludes that only seeing greenery every day can put us in better thinking and reduce the harmful desire for substances , such as alcohol, cigarettes and unhealthy food.
According to the University of Plymouth study, the opportunity to see greenery and the nature of your home will lead to a less frequent and intense desire. The study is based on previous work that has established a relationship between outdoor exercise and reduced appetite, but the study's authors claim that exercise is not needed to reap the benefits of nature.
his authors say that their discoveries highlight the need for cities and communities around the world to invest in and protect public green areas.
"It has been known for some time that nature's nature is related to the well-being of man. But to have such an association with starvation by simply seeing green areas adds a new dimension to previous research. This is the first study that explored this idea and could have a number of consequences for both public health and environmental programs in the future, "lead investigator Lean Martin explains in a report
. an online survey that questions questions about their daily exposure to nature, their usual appetites, and how often they experience negative emotions. As far as nature is concerned, the study measures the exposure of the participants to their own neighborhoods, the quantity of leaves visible from their homes, the access to the garden and the frequency of public parks.
The results show that daily access to the garden or other green areas reduces the frequency and appearance of harmful appetites. Moreover, the possibility of looking at nature from home is the cause of similar results. Researchers have also taken into consideration the studies but have found that participants have reported less appetite after seeing nature, whether or not they have practiced. We hope that green areas can be used to help people struggling with addictive addictions.
The study was published in the scientific journal Health & Place.
