Walking or Cycling to Work Improves Well-being

Researchers at the University of East Anglia have found that workers that walk or cycle to work instead of driving feel less under strain and find they can concentrate better at work. Researchers believe that leaving your car at home and travelling actively instead increases a person’s well-being. Even using public transport was more beneficial than driving.

The study was taken over a 18 year period using data from over 18,000 UK commuters.

The physical benefits of exercise are already well documented, but this study compounds the mental well-being benefits.
