With pandemic putting a stop to most travel plans, a new study shows that you still need to get out — to explore your own town.
Researchers in “Nature Neuroscience” now find that experiencing new things every day leads to more positive emotions.
Over several months, they tracked the moods and locations of one-hundred people in New York City and Miami. The researchers say the experiences didn’t need to be big or crazy. For example, those who just went out in to their own neighborhoods, for even a short time, rather than sit home all day, were happier.
