BBC uploaded 40 hours of beautiful 'Planet Earth II' bonus footage to YouTube.

Plus, the visual masterpiece might have some health benefits.

BBC's "Planet Earth" series is one of the most visually stunning looks at nature ever captured on film — and now there's a whole lot more of it to watch.

As part of the group's Real Happiness Project, the team over at BBC Earth has uploaded 40 hours of bonus "Planet Earth II" footage. Broken into 10-hour "soundscapes," the videos span the globe, highlighting everything from remote islands to sandy deserts.

Not only is this remarkable nature experience extremely calming, but according to BBC Earth's own research with the University of California, Berkeley, watching it can actually make you feel happier, as well.


Next time you need a boost of positivity, cue up one of these four videos and spend a few minutes absorbing the wonder of nature.
