The comforting light from combining a natural view with an artificial environment is believed to have a positive impact on serotonin and melatonin. According to Healthline, "These chemicals help control your sleep and wake cycle. Serotonin also helps reduce anxiety and improve mood. Low levels of serotonin have been linked to depression."
