Humans go to great lengths to bolster happiness, whether it be for a t1eeting moment or for a more abiding sense of psychological well-being. Current research suggests that one way to increase human happiness is through spending time in nature (Zelenski & Nisbet, 2014). It is important to note that human happiness is a multifaceted construct, with both affective and cognitive components (Zelenski & Nisbet, 2014). In this study we aimed to examine both the affective and cognitive components of happiness-in other words, hedonic happiness and eudaimonic happiness-in order to add to the burgeoning body of literature that is environmental psychology.
