If you want to feel health­ier, live some­where more scenic, says a new sur­vey. The re­search, car­ried out by the Univer­sity of War­wick, UK, col­lected more than 1.5 mil­lion rat­ings on the ‘scenic­ness’ of more than 2,12,000 pic­tures of Bri­tain. To as­sess a link be­tween scenic­ness and feel­ings of health, they then com- bined th­ese rat­ings with data where peo­ple re­ported their gen­eral health. The re­sults show that peo­ple who lived in ar­eas rated as more scenic, re­ported their health to be bet­ter. “Beauty of our ev­ery­day en­vi­ron­ment might have more prac­ti­cal im­por­tance than was pre­vi­ously be­lieved,” says coau­thor Chanuki Seresinhe.
