Walking in the park promotes humor and self-esteem, says study
A brief walk in green areas such as parks and gardens can significantly improve mental health, bringing benefits for mood and self-esteem, according to a study by the University of Essex in the UK.
Comparing data from 1,200 people of different ages, genres and mental health status, the researchers found that who engaged in outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, gardening, fishing, canoeing, horse riding, and agriculture, had positive effects on mood and self-esteem, even if these activities were practiced for only a few minutes a day. The greatest benefits reported by researchers were between the younger and those who already had mental problems. The exact reason for improved health is not yet known, but the benefits have been proven by scientists, who warned that politicians should develop more greenfield projects in large cities and encourage people to spend more time exercising in parks and squares.
One of the study's researchers, published in Environmental Sciente & Technology, said there could be great potential benefit to individuals, society, and health care costs if all groups of people self- plus "green exercises."
According to the authors, all social groups and age groups can benefit from this type of activity. And all natural environments had positive effects for the participants, although green areas had the greatest benefits for mental health.
