Abstract   Nature connectedness is an individual difference of people’s sense of connection with nature, including nature perspectives, affection and experience. The measuring approaches include self-reported scales and Implicit Association Test. Theoretical and empirical evidence indicates that engagement with nature can restore mental fatigue, improve cognitive performance, relieve physical and mental symptoms, enhance well-being, and increase prosociality. Researchers have developed series of interventions to boost nature connectedness. The future directions should further investigate its concept, methodology, conditions of positive effect, cultural variables and so on.
Keywords nature connectedness      measurement      restorativeness      well-being
