Forest Bathing, Japan
Feel the stress melt away as you embrace the Japanese practice of forest bathing. Listen to leaves crunching underfoot, birds singing in the trees and the wind whistling through the branches. Grab a handful of earth and feel the velvety touch of mossy branches as you breathe in lungs full of fresh air and sense the gentle kiss of the breeze on your cheeks. For the Japanese, Forest Bathing reduces stress, improves sleep quality, and regains one's focus. So, if you need some respite, head to a forest (while being careful to maintain social distancing), or simply get out into your back garden to take advantage of this effective natural remedy. You can even look online for some virtual forest bathing.
