SHINRIN-YOKU or THE JAPANESE WAY OF FORREST BATHING

A couple of days ago I found an article in a magazine about "Shinrin-Yoku" or the Japanese way of forrest bathing. It is about spending quality time in the woods and finding health benefits of being alone in the nature. A forrest walk helps decrease our stress hormone levels and brings our blood pressure down. It it also a preventive medicine like a Qi Gong or a yoga class can be.

The trees nurture us with clean and fresh air, the colour green has healing effects and the whisper of the leaves in the wind makes us feel calm and self-centered. It only takes 20 minutes in the woods to get all the benefits that nature provides for us, especially when a stressful work life harms our well-being. Just try it and you will feel immediately the healing effect shinrin-yoku has on us.
Have fun bathing in the forrest of your choice,
