The Japanese art of forest bathing, aka Shinrin-yoku, is essentially practicing mindfulness in nature. This is a form of nature therapy that supports health and wellness through the use of the natural environments. Spending time in forests or other green spaces has been proven to improve your mood, boost your concentration levels and even have a positive effect on your cardiovascular and immune systems. Forest bathers connect to nature as their healer, and through mindfulness and having a reciprocal relationship with the natural world, the practioner is likely to see an improvement of their personal wellbeing.
