Taking real steps in virtual nature: a randomized blinded trial


Studies show that green exercise (i.e., physical activity in the presence of nature) can provide benefits of both physical exercise and nature exposure. The present study aimed to investigate the extent to which virtual green exercise may extend these benefits to people that are unable to engage in active visits to natural environments, as well as to promote enhanced exercise behavior.
