19 October 2019

While more than half of humanity now lives in cities, there is a growing desire among citizens to return to live as close as possible to nature.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's second largest economic city, is home to about six million cariocas, thousands of cars and buses that travel every day, skyscrapers, but it is also the city where ciment and nature are spectacularly intermingled, for the greater good of its inhabitants.

The city is home to magnificent natural sites such as fine sandy beaches, salt water lagoons, hills of imposing beauty, the Tijuca forest and the botanical garden where you can hear birds singing, incredible sunsets to enjoy while sipping a caïpirinha....

Rio de Janeiro is undoubtedly one of the greenest big cities in the world and the benefits of this proximity to nature are many.

Let's go with 4 healthy reasons to choose a property close to nature, in Rio de Janeiro.

1) Immersion in nature makes it more creative

According to a study, walking in the wild, away from technology, stimulates the brain and especially the part related to creativity. During their experiment, the researchers sent 56 volunteers for a trekking tour of regions that are full of natural landscapes for few days. When they returned, a comparative test on a neutral sample was carried out and the results of the study indicate an improvement of nearly 50% in their creative skills for the group that had been in contact of nature.
