Forest bathing is a nature connection practice designed to relieve stress, enhance wellbeing and promote relaxation.
Forest bathing derives from the Japanese term ‘shinrin-yoku’ which means ‘bathing in the forest atmosphere’ or ‘taking in the forest using your senses’. There is no swimming involved!
The aim of forest bathing is to help you to slow down while walking in nature and awaken all of your senses in order to fully connect to the nature around you. This increases your capacity to be fully present and enables feelings of relaxation and calmness which can be an effective antidote to our stressful, technology-driven lifestyles.
We know inherently that spending time in nature can be good for us. Among other positive benefits, research studies have shown that forest bathing can:
– lower stress
– reduce blood pressure
– restore our mental energy
– boost the immune system
– improve concentration
– increase creativity
…’and into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul’- John Muir
