Spending time in nature brings many physical and mental health benefits. Now a new study suggests that even just being able to see nature from your bedroom window could support your health. According to research by investigators from the University of Plymouth in the United Kingdom, having a view of greenery can increase your health.

Last year, a randomized controlled trial found that spending time walking in nature helped lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels and significantly improve mood.

And, earlier this year, a study concluded that even just having access to green spaces throughout childhood decreased a person’s risk of developing mental health problems later in life.
