Forest Bathing - Shinrin-Yoku

 Nature therapy, sometimes referred to as ecotherapy, describes a broad group of techniques or treatments that uses an individual's presence within nature with the intention of improving an individual's mental or physical health.

 

Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku. Shinrin in Japanese means “forest,” and yoku means “bath.” So shinrin-yoku means bathing in the forest atmosphere, or taking in the forest through our senses.

2.         Slow down.
