Research Project

The aim of the study is to investigate whether nature connectedness can help in emotion regulation.

Nature connectedness is the relationship between people and the rest of nature and examines an individual’s sense of their relationship with the natural world. 

Emotion regulation includes all of the conscious and non-conscious strategies we use to increase, to maintain or decrease one or more components of an emotional response. Mindfulness relates to mindful awareness that plays an important role in emotion regulation. Forest bathing or other types of green activities or nature-based interventions enhanced by the presence of a forest bathing guide may have potential for improved wellbeing and connection with nature. However, people are likely to use nature differently or use different ways to regulate their emotions.
