The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on changes in healthy living practices, such as decreased physical exercise and increased stress, compromising psychological well-being. The psychological impacts of walking and relaxing in urban green spaces on IPB University students are investigated in this study. Bogor City Alun-Alun, Sempur Park, and Heulang Park were used for the experiment. Participants completed 15 minutes of walking and relaxed sitting before and after the experiment, and the psychological impacts were assessed using Profiles of Mood States (POMS), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and WHO Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) before and after the experiment. The results indicate that physical activity improves psychological wellness. These findings give scientific evidence for the psychologically relaxing effects of walking and relaxed sitting, as well as recommendations to support the development and construction of therapeutic urban green spaces.</em></p> Mona Sari, Dr. Indung Sitti Fatimah, Dr. Prita Indah Pratiwi, Dr. Bambang Sulistyantara Copyright (c) 2023 Mona Sari, Dr. Indung Sitti Fatimah, Dr. Prita Indah Pratiwi, Dr. Bambang Sulistyantara Sat, 25 Feb 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The Role of Home Gardens in Developing Cities for Improving Workers' Psychological Conditions <p><em>During the lockdown period, people were restricted from doing many things, particularly activities outside the home, putting strain on psychological circumstances. This study intends to demonstrate that providing a home garden to improve the psychological state of the workers' community may alleviate the challenges of access to green open space in city settings. This study investigates the psychological state of employees and the impact of home gardens on the psychological state of workers in numerous cities in Indonesia during the pandemic. The survey was carried out utilising the Snowball sampling approach by asking various questions and filling out a questionnaire on the participants' backgrounds and psychological problems using PSS-14 and WEMWBS. Data from participants were analysed using correlation and ANOVA. According to the findings of this study, the presence of a home garden utilised for activities has a substantial impact on the psychological condition of the working community. It is advised that the workers' community participate in activities in the home garden five days a week for at least one hour. On the other hand, it is suggested that urban housing developers pay more attention to the house garden and its constituent aspects.</em></p> Samuel Nanda Lazuardi, Dr. Bambang Sulistyantara, Dr. Prita Indah Pratiwi Copyright (c) 2022 Samuel Nanda Lazuardi, Dr. Bambang Sulistyantara, Dr. Prita Indah Pratiwi Fri, 18 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0000
