The aim of this study was to examine the possibility of restoring voluntary attention through the experience of soft fascination with nature considering the predictive role of nature relatedness (NR). The within-subject design was used to in two alterable contexts: a virtual experience of urban and nature. The Nature Relatedness Scale and series of addition tasks within 100 after exposure to short videos depicting nature vs urban was performed by a group of 99 persons aged 18 to 70. The results show the importance of contact with nature for increasing the counting speed irrespectively to the intensity of NR.
