Psychology of Park Running when in a City


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- There is a new study on the psychological and physical stress reactions people have to different urban environments. Results of the study say that being in a city park is much more restorative than being in a busy downtown area.

Researchers from Finland conducted the study by measuring the moods and salivary cortisol levels of 77 people in the Finnish city of Helsinki. The participants were in an urban park, an urban wooded area and the city center.

In the two park environments, the study participants reported higher feelings of being restored, also improved mood, creativity and vitality. In contrast, those feelings were not as present when in the city center. The feeling of restoration was the highest in the wooded area.
