This study extends the previous research regarding the beneficial impacts of nature experiences on mental and physical health. A provocative exercise was designed to facilitate the sensory contact with natural objects on a group of 30 persons. The level of anxiety was assessed before and after participating in this exercise. We used an experimental design, observation, psychodiagnostic instruments (State – Trait Anxiety Inventory), and statistical methods (Paired-Samples T Test). After the participation in this type of provocative exercise the participants experienced a lower level of state anxiety, decresed levels of irritability, worry and fear.
