Positive distraction

Research shows that healthcare environments with certain features can help to reduce stress, anxiety and pain, which can accelerate recovery and reduce the need for painkillers by means of positive distraction. Positive distraction can be achieved, for example, by providing views, preferably of nature, or by placing greenery in the room. Good art is another good example of positive distraction, but it is important what you choose – art should not contribute to raised anxiety.
