Having studied the mood of 800 people, half of them changed their place of residence, and the rest were not moved for at least two years, scientists at the University of Bath came to an interesting conclusion. About it writes The Daily Mail.
The volunteers underwent a test of 25 questions about the habits and other topics. Scientists say that those people who have changed for the better and changed habits recently moved. To change habits, the volunteers took about three months. This period, the study authors called a "window of opportunity".
Habits are established when we repeat a pattern of behavior from day to day, concluded the experts. The study was published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology.
