Wow. According to one U.K. study, “cyclists are 40% less stressed during and after their commutes compared to those who drove or took public transport.” 40%! (via CleanTechnica)
An efficient solution to stress, balanced exercise or fulfilling physical work clears the static and nourishes body and mind. Stressed from work? Worried from local or world news? Consider that active commuting (particularly, bicycling to work) ameliorates stress and boosts psychological well-being, according to a UK study titled, “Does active commuting improve psychological wellbeing? Longitudinal evidence from eighteen waves of the British Household Panel Survey.” Findings from Stanford University’s Calming Technology Lab similarly reveal that cyclists are 40% less stressed during and after their commutes compared to those who drove or took public transport.
