Here’s how regular dose of nature may improve mental health during COVID-19 pandemic

New Delhi, Nov 22 (ANI): While staying close to nature can lead to many health benefits, a recent study has highlighted another advantage of the same. As per a new study, nature around one's home may help mitigate some of the negative mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new study was published in the journal Ecological Applications. An online questionnaire survey completed by 3,000 adults in Tokyo, Japan, quantified the link between five mental-health outcomes (depression, life satisfaction, subjective happiness, self-esteem and loneliness) and two measures of nature experiences (frequency of green space use and green view through windows from home).
