Forest Bathing is the act of being mindful in nature, a process of
relaxation – in particular when amongst trees. It is all about taking the
opportunity to be calm, still and make use of all your senses amongst trees.
It involves observing everything around you, the sights, scents, sounds,
movement, taste and touch whilst consciously breathing deeply.
Practicing these activities can help everyone reduce stress, boost health and well being and connect with ourselves, others and nature in nature.
Cultures all over the world practise a technique called ‘Forest Bathing’ – in Japanese it’s called ‘Shinrin-yoku’, in Mandarin it is ‘Sēnlínyù’ and in Korean it’s known as sanlimyok.
