Walk Through Green Space Could Help Put Brain In State Of Meditation, Study Finds
Entering a more ‘zen’ mindset could be as easy as taking a walk in the park, according to a small new study.
New research from scientists at Heriot-Watt University in the U.K. conducted mobile brain electrical activity testing on volunteers to find that the brain enters a meditative state when going through green spaces.
The findings have “implications for promoting urban green space as a mood-enhancing environment for walking or for other forms of physical or reflective activity,” they wrote in the study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
