There is something special about living outdoors. Women in particular can add more healthier years to their lives. It was found that women who lived in an area surrounded by greenery had a 12% overall decreased mortality rate versus those who were living in less greener areas.
Women living in greener areas had a 34% lower rate of respiratory-related deaths and a 13% lower rate of cancer deaths than when compared to others.
A recent study also found that women tend to live longer when they are surrounded by greenery. This is linked with the fact that natural environments help to lower stress and also increase physical activity, which leads to increased healthier years.
There is a greater link between residential greenness and mortality rates. Other factors like age, race, smoking and socio-economic status are also taken into consideration while looking into this.
It was found that women who lived in about 250-metre distance of greener areas near their homes had a 12% lower rate of non-accidental mortality. These associations were found to be the strongest for respiratory and cancer mortality rates.
Reduction in physical activity and social activity can lead to depression and exposure to greenery helps reduce this.
So, if you want to live a healthier and long life, just make a tweak to the area in which you spend most of your time at.
Further, a large proportion of the benefit from high levels of vegetation seem to be connected to improved mental health.
Greenery was known to affect the mortality rate related to cancer, respiratory and kidney diseases, and mortality rate through mental health, social engagement, physical activity and air pollution.
