☆ alleviate （病気などを）癒す
Being and playing outdoors has many benefits. One of which is that it alleviates stress. Research all the way back in 2003, showed that being in nature, or being surrounded by many natural play areas alleviates stress in children. (Research by Wells & Evans, 2003).
I’m sure that being outdoors in nature can help alleviate stress in adults, too. In fact, we often talk about green therapy, which basically means getting outdoors in nature and surrounding yourself with greenery. This kind of “therapy” has been shown to alleviate depression. Even just a 20-minute walk outdoors in a green space can alleviate depression and a lack of focus… just remember to leave your mobile phone at home or in your pocket!
