Video-game playing for less than an hour a day is linked with better-adjusted children

A new study suggests video game-playing for less than an hour a day is linked with better-adjusted children and teenagers. The research, carried out by Oxford University, found that young people who indulged in a little video game-playing were associated with being better adjusted than those who had never played or those who were on video games for three hours or more.

The green shoots of recovery

The green shoots of recovery | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

"Research by the University of Essex, published in January, found that moving to a green space had a lasting effect on wellbeing, compared to other factors such as promotion, a pay rise or even a lottery win, where the boosts were short term. The study, using data from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) of 40,000 homes, compared lottery winners who had won more than £500,000. After six months their happiness levels had returned to baseline while those who had moved to a green space were still reaping the benefits three years later."
