Forest Bathing

Forest bathing is the practice of immersing yourself in nature in a mindful way and using your senses to derive a whole range of benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional health.

It is also known as Shinrin-yoku. ‘Shinrin’ means forest and ‘Yoku’ stands for bathing. The idea took birth in Japan in the 1980s and proved to be a very effective tool to overcome the ill effects of a hectic life and stressful work environment.

Connecting with nature allows the stressed portions of your brain to relax.

Positive hormones are released in the body. You feel less sad, angry, and anxious. It helps to avoid stress and burnout, and aids in fighting depression and anxiety. Being in nature is known to boost immunity and leads to lesser days of illness as well as faster recovery from injury or surgery.

Nature has a positive effect on our mind as well as body. It improves heart and lung health and is known to increases focus, concentration, and memory.
