People Who Cycle to Work Feel Less Stressed, Study
A new study from Concordia University in Canada suggests that people who cycled to work reported feeling less stressed compared to people who went to work by car.
For the study, the researchers used a web-based survey to collect information from 123 adults who worked at an organization Autodesk, a software company in Ontario, Canada. Having analyzed the collected data, the researchers came to the conclusion that employees who cycled to work reported much lower stress levels within 45 minutes of arrival compared to those who traveled to work by car.
Lead study author Stephane Brutus of the John Molson School of Business at Concordia says: “With growing concerns about traffic congestion and pollution, governments are increasingly promoting non-motorized alternative modes of transport, such as walking and cycling. I can only hope that further studies will follow our lead and develop more precise and deliberate research into this phenomenon.”
