Watching nature on TV can boost wellbeing


Watching high quality nature programmes on TV can uplift people’s moods, reduce negative emotions, and help alleviate the kind of boredom associated with being isolated indoors, according to a new BlueHealth study released today.

Centre PhD student Alex Smalley and the BlueHealth team have worked with the BBC Natural History Unit to create experimental conditions to test their hypothesis. Their findings support initiatives seeking to bring the therapeutic potential of nature to people at home, such as BBC Four’s recent Mindful Escapes series.
