The best remedy for those who are frightened, lonely or unhappy, is to go outside, somewhere where they can be alone; alone with the sky, nature and God. For then and only then can you feel that everything is as it should be and that God wants people to be happy amid nature's beauty and simplicity.
As long as this exists, and that should be for ever, I know that there will be solace for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances.
I firmly believe that nature can bring comfort to all who suffer.
- Anne Frank

Whilst I agree that being in nature can bring solace, this is a temporary fix for those who are "frightened, lonely or unhappy" - just as playing soothing music might be. It's welcoming and beneficial but may not solve the origin reason for being in one of those states.

But it may enable them to think more constructively so they may realise they don't need to feel fear loneliness or unhappiness....they may see solutions to their issues ,due to their minds being calmer
