FOREST BATHING
This form of nature therapy, originally
from Japan and known as shinrin yoku,
involves immersing yourself in a forest
by engaging your senses.

Next, slowly wander along the trail, taking the time to
really notice. Move almost sloth-like slow. Look at
your surroundings as if it were the first time you’ve
seen a forest. Touch and smell tree bark, soil and
plants. Feel the temperature of the air as it enters your
nose and as it exits. Notice the sun as it warms your
skin and casts shadows along the forest floor.
At some point along your lackadaisical walk, find a
place to stop and sit. Quiet your mind and be still.
Observe how the behavior of the birds changes after
they are used to your presence. Note how the wind is
moving the branches. Breathe.

Why is forest bathing beneficial?
Simple: nature is medicine
and you can also make new friends...
