My street is a happy safe place to be.
Here’s some good news for those of us lucky enough to live far away from the asphalt jungle. According to a new study, living on a tree-lined street . . . could actually SAVE YOUR LIFE. How?
Researchers from the University of Illinois have found that when people live on tree-lined streets, they’re happier, healthier . . . and are less likely to become victims of crime.
A woman named Frances Kuo led the study. She says, “Nature calms people and it also helps them psychologically rejuvenate. They are better able to handle the challenges which come their way.
“People with less access to nature show relatively poor attention or cognitive function, poor management of major life issues and poor impulse control. The relationship between crime and vegetation is very clear: The more trees, the fewer crimes.”
