ABSTRACT

Urban environments have a negative impact on health by causing stress due to noise, population density, crowding, and pollution. Therefore, urban residents pursue leisure activities in a nature-based restorative environment to improve their health and quality of life. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of perceived stress of urban people on health-related quality of life through a nature-based healing restorative environment. For this purpose, this study conducted an empirical analysis of visitors to Mt. Bukhan. The results of the analysis showed that the perceived stress of the urban residents had a negative effect on healing restorative environment, healing restorative environment had a positive effect on restorative experience, and restorative experience had a partially positive effect on health-related quality of life. These results show that healing restorative environment is important in the health-related quality of life of urban residents, and ultimately leisure activities in the healing restorative environment improve the health-related quality of life. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a policy to continuously create a nature-based restorative environment for health of urban residents.
