FORT PARKWAY, U.K. - April 22, 2013 - PRLog -- ‘Going Green’ a common phrase heard across the nation, now has a new meaning! Going green not only helps the environment but also can improve the quality and wellbeing of people’s lives, EUM Consultants take a look at how.

A study of 5,000 households over 17 years has shown that those surrounded by gardens, parks and green areas can have a higher quality of life, and a significant positive effect on their quality of life. The findings could have a huge impact on society. The data followed 5,000 households in the United Kingdom, and 10,000 adults between 1991 and 2008 as they moved house across the country, and asked participants to report their own psychological health during the time to estimate the ‘green space effect’. “If it is proven that people are less stressed, and have higher life satisfaction from living in green areas compared to urban spaces, then green areas will definitely be in higher demand than before, and so going green is not only important for the environment but also for people’s own wellbeing” says Mark McAlear, Managing Director of EUM Consultants. The positive effect was true after changes such as employment, marital status and income had already been accounted for.

The effects are so substantial, that they are equally similar to positive life events such as marriage and employment. “At EUM Consultants, we have a large focus on going green, I can see ‘going green’ becoming more important to many people after this study, as it is personal to individuals as well as the planet and our future” says Alex Tsimboykas, sales director at EUM Consultants.

The effects are not necessarily huge for each individual, but when you look at them as a whole, they really could affect society in an extremely positive way. “If living in greener areas rather than densely populated areas means that the general wellbeing and quality of life of those in that area is increased, urban planners could make some quite drastic changes to the future development of urban areas, which could change the quality of life for a lot of people, now and in the future” says Mark McAlear Managing Director of EUM Consultants.

Access to green areas, particularly in densely populated areas, is very important. It is a great way to get away from the daily stresses of life, so its no wonder it helps to de-stress people” says Alex Tsimboykas, sales director of EUM Consultants.

This is not the first and definitely not the last study to prove ‘going green’ is necessary, whether its insulating your property or living in a green area, so if you haven’t managed to ‘jump on the bandwagon’ yet, now is the time to do so.
