Mental well-being: A New York state of mind | The Economist

Mental well-being: A New York state of mind | The Economist.

Talk about a talking point.  I’ve long held that living in the country does more for a person’s sanity than living in the city ever could, and this article is just proof that popular science is trying to verify that fact with numbers.  There is a little bit of solace in every breath of country air that the high-rise windbreaking skyscrapers cannot replicate, however hard they may try.

A social psychological study of the differences between lifestyle 1 and lifestyle 2 would take years to execute ‘perfectly’, and even then it would be limited by the general stock of difficulties, but as this article may prove, the trend of studying country vs. city life may have already begun.

All I can say is that there’s nothing better to clear your head than a drive through the Texas countryside, where you can stand on a ledge and gaze at a picture painted just for you, drinking in the beauty of a quieter, still, long-forgotten life.
