Washington D. C, Apr 29 : Did your weekend trip to the beach leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed? Well, now there's science that proves residents with a view of the water are less stressed.
The study, co-authored by Michigan State University's Amber L. Pearson, is the first to find a link between health and the visibility of water, which the researchers call blue space.
"Increased views of blue space are significantly associated with lower levels of psychological distress," said Pearson. "However, we did not find that with green space."
