Achieving happiness is one of the goals we pursue throughout life, and it is becoming more and more difficult to achieve. Not only because of the stress and anxiety to which we are subjected on a daily basis, but

has been completely distorted the definition of this concept.

Being happy does not mean being well all the time, constantly smiling and jumping for joy, on the contrary, many times

We are being happy, and we don’t realize it. We prefer to focus on those negative moments, to which we pay more attention than they deserve.

Obsessing with happiness is one of the worst things you can do, even

will have the opposite effect to what you are looking for. Feelings of loneliness and personal failure, as you set goals that are often far from reality.

But, although it is true that we cannot be constantly looking for it, we can include tools in our lives that

help us get it. For example, the 3-30-300 rule, which not only benefits us in this sense, but can also benefit mental health.

What is the 3-30-300 rule

This standard refers to

the proportion of nature that we all need to benefit our mental health. It is something that you probably did not expect, but the truth is that it has been more than proven that living surrounded by trees can increase our well-being.

Proof of this are the Nordic countries, considered

the happiest in the world, and it is partly thanks to this. This regulation establishes that each citizen must see at least three trees from their home, have 30% vegetation cover in their neighborhood and not live more than 300 meters from the nearest park or green space.

This method only has one year of life, established by the

Dutch forester Cecil Konijnendijk, professor of urban greening. The aim of this is that everyone has access to green spaces, which allow us to free ourselves from the hustle and bustle of the city, finding a haven of peace in which to not think about anything else.

Nature allows us to be happier

As we have told you, this is a proven fact. green spaces

They have many health benefits, both physically and psychologically. This translates into an improvement in social relationships, a decrease in anxiety and stress and an increase in personal well-being.

That nature is found in cities is essential, because it does not force you to have to travel miles away to a forest which, although you can do it, many times

we do not do it due to laziness or lack of time. In this way, simply by going out into the street you are already in contact with it, being able to enjoy its advantages daily.
