Wellness Shot: Get Out Of Your House To Be Happier


With coronavirus putting a stop to most travel plans, a new study says you still need to get out -- to explore your own town.

Researchers in "Nature Neuroscience" found that experiencing new things every day leads to more positive emotions.

Over several months, they tracked the moods and locations of one-hundred people in New York City and Miami. 

The researchers say the experiences didn't need to be big or crazy. For example, those who just went out in their own neighborhoods rather than sitting home all day were happier.

What local places have you explored or rediscovered during the pandemic?
