Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Stressrelaterad ohälsa är idag vanligt förekommande och orsakar personligt lidande. Stress handlar om obalans mellan belastning och återhämtning. Långvarig stress kan resultera i en livssituation som ger både psykisk och fysisk ohälsa. För den som arbetar inom människovårdande yrken är det därför viktigt att kunna känna igen stress och dess symtom Syfte: Att belysa hur människor med stress upplever vistelse i naturen. Metod: Vald metod är en litteraturöversikt där kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar studerats. Resultat: Naturvistelse bidrar till psykologisk återhämtning vid stress. Stressade människor upplever att de har lättare att få ihop vardagen tack vare den återhämtning de får i naturen. Förmågan att reflektera kring sitt livssammanhang ökar och kraft och ambition att ta sig an framtiden infinner sig genom naturvistelse. Även fysisk återhämtning upplevs genom vistelse i naturen. Att erfara naturen via syn, känsel, smak och lukt upplevs ha en lugnande och avslappnande inverkan. Generellt bidrar vistelse i naturen till att människor känner sig förankrade i tillvaron och upplever känslor som glädje och tacksamhet. Konklusion: Resultatet visar att människor som lider av stress upplever återhämtning genom vistelse i natur
