We all talk about the benefits of nature, right? But when was the last time that anyone quantified those benefits to you?
After all, it’s entirely possible to overstate the case for anything if you want to.
So, for example, can birds make us happy? If so, how happy? Let’s find out.
Bird Song And Happiness
Yes, birds make us happy.
In fact, multiple studies have shown that the sound of a diverse range of birds makes us happier.
Research involving 26,000 Europeans found that the happiest people in Europe have one thing in common: they can hear a wide-range of bird song near where they live.
The Price Of Happiness
Researchers also found that this has a positive impact on our lives equivalent to earning an extra $150 a month.
So bird song is worth nearly $2,000 a year when it comes to how happy it makes us!
