I believe myself that time in nature improves well-being, so in the spirit of following my own advice, let’s look closely at this story.
Or it could be some common cause (wealth, physical health, etc.) causes both well-being and time in nature. The authors attempt to control for some of these, but it’s hard.
First of all, the study participants are grouped into categories:
120-179 min/week, etc.
If we want to communicate science to the public, we need to work together across these levels to do better.
