Seeing greenery linked to less intense and frequent cravings
  • Study based on online survey indicates that being around nature is linked to less cravings (smoking, alcohol, other substances, unhealthy behaviours).
  • It could have implications on public health and environmental protection, adding to the existing evidence that green spaces are good for people in cities.
  • The causality of this phenomenon needs more studies.
  • These findings are a promising first step, and future studies should investigate how green spaces can be used to help city dwellers avoid problematic cravings.
