Subjective emotions were assessed on three items , between relaxed and aroused , and between natural and artificial ), according to a regulation of a modified semantic differential method, following the experience of the forest or city sounds. The subjectivity evaluation of feelings as documented with six items of the questions and TMD score on the questionnaire evaluating feeling states due to the experience of the forest or city sounds. Tension–anxiety , depression–dejection , anger–hostility , fatigue , confusion , vigor , and total mood disturbance . Data are shown as the mean ± standard error . ** p < 0.01, * p < 0.05 as generated by the Wilcoxon signed-rank test . Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere . All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI. Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed . The Feature Paper can be either an original research article, a substantial novel research study that often involves several techniques or approaches, or a comprehensive review paper with concise and precise updates on the latest progress in the field that systematically reviews the most exciting advances in scientific literature. This type of paper provides an outlook on future directions of research or possible applications. Future research on nature therapy will introduce a new concept that we have called “Sustainable Nature Therapy,” i.e., nature therapy with environmental, cultural, social, and economic sustainability. We have already proposed the benefits of nature therapy with respect to disease prevention and reductions in medical costs. However, we also need to respond to the global critical changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Pre- and post-measurement values of the natural logarithm of the high frequency reflecting parasympathetic nerve activities evoked by wooden interior wall images and the gray image. N = 27, mean ± SE, ‡ p < 0.05 obtained from the paired t -test. Overall mean oxyhemoglobin level in the prefrontal cortex. Oxyhemoglobin level in the left prefrontal cortex, oxyhemoglobin level in the right prefrontal cortex; n = 28, mean ± standard error , * p < 0.05 as calculated based on the paired t -test with the Holm method, ‡ p < 0.05 obtained from the paired t -test. The purpose of this Special Issue is to propose the concept of “Sustainable Nature Therapy” and accumulate physiological data on the effect of nature on well-being. Our aim is to develop a strong rationale and scientific basis for performing sustainable nature therapy both now and in the future. Overall mean oxyhemoglobin concentration in the left and right areas of the prefrontal cortex across viewing of forest and urban areas. Data were delineated as mean ± standard errors, n = 29. * p < 0.05, # p < 0.08, as found using paired t-test . Changes in oxyhemoglobin concentrations in the left and right areas of the prefrontal cortex across viewing of forest and urban areas. Data were delineated as mean ± standard errors, n = 29.

Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to authors, or important in this field. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal. Pre-stimulus and post-stimulus values of the natural logarithm of the low frequency/high frequency reflecting sympathetic nerve activities evoked by wooden interior wall images and the gray image. N = 27, mean ± SE, ‡ p < 0.05 obtained from the paired t -test. Feature Papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. Feature Papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and undergo peer review prior to publication. Shifts in the concentration levels of the oxyhemoglobin of the left prefrontal cortex during experience of the forest rather than the city sounds; time-dependent changes; the overall mean. Changes in the concentration levels of the oxy-Hb of the right prefrontal cortex during experience of the forest or city sounds, time-dependent changes; the overall mean. The data have been presented as the mean ± standard error . * A one sided paired t-test was carried out with significance at p < 0.05. Oxyhemoglobin level in the prefrontal cortex during the visual stimulation using wooden interior wall images and the gray image every second of the 90-s period. N = 28, Mean ± SE.
