Take the scenic route … A study found that people who took a more scenic route to and from work were happier than those who didn’t. Researchers found that people whose commutes took them through areas with trees, parks, or other natural settings were more likely to have better mental health. These routes didn’t have to be development free, either. They just needed to have some trees or a park or even some kind of water. The authors defined the settings as “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.” So maybe every once in a while get off the highway and take some side streets.
