An experiment in 2018 found that spending time in nature helped reduce stress and improve mood swings. In the current year, an additional study figured that being close to nature since childhood could support better mental health. The lead author of the study, Leanne Martine, said that “It has been known for some time that being outdoors in nature is linked to a person’s well-being. But, for there to be a similar association with cravings from simply being able to see green spaces adds a new dimension to previous research.” The study was published in the journal, Health & Place.
