小编摘要:为什么住棚屋有益于身心健康呢?“男人工棚”又是怎么回事呢?你知道吗?

 

据英国《每日邮报》12月1日报道,棚屋通常又湿又冷,还充满了各种各样的爬虫,但是在英国,越来越多的人选择这种曾经不起眼的小棚屋作为家外之家。
They are often damp, cold and home to a rich variety of creepy crawlies.
而且更为重要的是,一项新研究声称,独居在花园深处的棚屋里实际上是有益健康的。
But for a growing number of men the once-humble shed is fast becoming a home-from-home.
发表在《英国医学杂志》上的一项研究揭示,安静祥和的休息住所能帮助降低血压。
And what's more, new research claims the solitude it provides at the bottom of the garden could actually be good for their health.
该文章的作者是来自英国利兹城市大学的教授艾伦-怀特,他说:“完成一项任务的过程能让男性获得成就感,他们知道一间棚屋意味着什么,而且棚屋让他们觉得很舒服。”
A study published in the British Medical Journal suggests that the peaceful retreat may help lower blood pressure.
怀特教授的研究发现,英国的务工男性过早死亡的概率是他们配偶的两倍。
Its author, Professor Alan White, of Leeds Metropolitan University, said
他声称棚屋和独居能有效扭转这种趋势。
“There's a sense of achievement that men get from starting a task to seeing it through to completion. Men know what a shed means and they feel comfortable.”
“男人工棚”最先出现在澳大利亚,但是在英国从湖区到格林威治已经有20间公共棚屋如雨后春笋般建立起来。
Professor White's study found that working men in Britain were almost twice as likely to die prematurely as their female counterparts.
