We’ve been talking for the last few weeks about how happiness and health are generated or depleted by the way our neighbourhoods, towns, cities, and rural landscapes are developed – here, here, and here. We’ve been discussing these ideas in national terms, looking at indices and trends. During this study, I couldn’t help but reflect on the elements of place that make me the happiest, personally.
If you’re a frequent reader on PlaceShakers, you probably already know that I’m inspired and delighted by great cycling cities, cycling through nature, gardening, retail streets, travel, living outdoors, cottage living, and art.
