Treehugger reports that the BBC has produced 50 hours of nature videos with soothing pictures and sound tracks.
According to the report, research sponsored by BBC Earth showed that viewing nature videos can have the same calming effect as actually being out in nature.
There are a number of reports showing that being in nature is good for health. In Japan, physicians can prescribe forest bathing.
And now, thanks to the BBC, you can reap the same benefits of nature from the comfort of your sofa.
