Want it to Feel like Christmas? Go to the Park!

A new study has found that spending time in city parks can improve our mood just as much as Christmas.

Published in the People and Nature Journal, this research looked at the content of people’s tweets and found that those who visited urban parks used more upbeat words and expressed less negativity on Twitter than they did before their visit.

The results also showed that their increase in happiness lasted up to four hours after their green space fix.
