One place can make you as happy as Christmas

August 22, 2019


If you want to get happy, go take a walk under some trees in a park. Science says so. A study found visitors to urban parks felt as much happiness as they would on a Christmas morning. That's the happiest day of the year by the way. And that elevated mood can last up to four hours. With more people living in cities, and growing rates of mood disorders, the recipe is pretty clear: Build more parks and visit them.
