Longer daily commutes linked to poor mental health by Korean study 

A study published in the Journal of Transport & Health shows how several effects of longer daily commutes can snowball into depression.

The study conducted in South Korea found that those who spend over an hour commuting to work are 16 per cent more likely to suffer from clinical depression than those who spend under 30 minutes on their commute.

Researchers analysed data from 23,415 people aged between 20 and 59 years. The results found that commuting can cause both physical and psychological stress, which can negatively impact health.
