Nature and Health. The influence of nature on social, psychological and physical well-being

For many people, nature is a place to relax and recover from the stresses of day-to-day life. The hectic pace of modern society means that people are turning more and more to nature for relaxation and recreation. However, in an increasingly populated and urbanised society, nature is no longer an inevitable component of the immediate living environment. To find nature, we have to travel greater and greater distances, by car, train or plane.
