Women who live in nature live longer, according to a new study. Natural environments can reduce stress and enhance physical and social engagement, which keeps individuals healthier, according to a research theory. The major goal of this research was to learn more about the link between “residential greenness and mortality.” Between 2000 and 2008, the study looked at 108,630 women. During the study, 8,604 of the women died. Age, race, smoking, and socioeconomic position were all taken into account in this study, and it was shown that women who lived near their homes with the greatest greenery “had a 12 percent lower rate of all-cause-non-accidental mortality.”
The researchers came to the conclusion that high amounts of green vegetation help to lower women’s mortality rates. These findings are particularly noteworthy in modern times, as the number of people living in cities continues to rise. However, one concern remains: why does less greenery entail less social activity? One answer is that individuals currently spend a lot of time in their cars or in front of a computer monitor. Depression could be exacerbated by a lack of physical and social exercise. Consider this for the time being: how much time do you spend outside each day? If you want to live a healthy and happy life, spend as much time as possible in nature.
