Take that vacation to lower risk of heart
attack and depression, or move near a park for better mental health.
If you want to be healthier, take more vacations and live near a
large park, according to two separate studies. Vacations are linked to
decreased risks of heart attack and depression and even promote brain health,
says a study from the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies with the
Global Commission on Aging and U. S. Travel Association. Moving closer to
green space improves mental health immediately and is sustained over long
periods of time, according to a University of Exeter Medical School study in
Britain. "These findings are important for urban planners thinking about
introducing new green spaces to towns and cities, suggesting they could
provide long-term and sustained benefits for local communities," the study
said. This story originally appeared on Fortune More good reads from
