Psychology Today reports that people who go on nature walks can experience significant boosts to self-esteem and mood levels, in addition to the benefits of being in the sunlight and absorbing Vitamin D.

Memory and learning can also be triggered by a stroll through the woods, but only if the speed is at a calm rate that is neither rushed or too slow. The best setting of all is a safe place with trees and grass, according to the news source.

Daylight has been found to improve sleeping patterns as well, because it can reinforce circadian rhythms, which are the natural times at which individuals become tired or alert. Since sunshine can raise mood levels, it may also stimulate creativity and abstract thinking, which the news provider claims are processes that are given boosts by happiness.

Allowing sunshine and the natural environment into the home may also be beneficial. Artists looking for inspiration, as well as those who want to benefit from the sun's positive effects, may want to invest in solar screen shades.

These window treatments filter sunshine into a home and eliminate glare. Since they are translucent, landscapes and natural environments are visible throughout the day.
