How do you get to work every day?
Do you lace up your walking shoes, clip on your helmet, or buckle up your seatbelt?
It might seem like a small choice, but this one part of your daily routine could be having a huge impact on your overall well-being.
A new study out of England shows that those who walk or bike to work experience mental benefits and have higher levels of happiness than those who drive. The ten-year study analyzed information from nearly 18,000 commuters, who were each assigned a well-being score based on their responses to questions about things like feelings of worthlessness or unhappiness, sleepless nights, or being unable to face problems.
