What do you do when you’re sick? Take some medicine, get lots of rest, and move to a new city. A recent study has revealed that the city you live in may have an effect on your health. It has been proven that residents of “pretty cities” tend to be healthier than people living in other environments. So, while living in an aesthetically pleasing environment may not be the cure for the common cold, it can help improve your overall wellbeing.
It might be a common assumption to equate beauty with nature; this study has proven it to mean the exact opposite. In fact, living in an urban area rather than rural is the key factor to this study. According to the article, “experts say it is ‘scenery’ rather than ‘greenery’ across urban, suburban, and rural areas which helps to create a positive environment and improve a person’s physical and mental well-being.” These studies have been made possible by the internet, which has made costs of collecting big data, such as information from a large city, less costly and more accessible.
