Shinrin-yoku (森林浴) – Nature Therapy

The Japanese phrase shinrin-yoku literally means forest bath and it’s a lovely mindfulness practice you can implement into your weekly schedule. It would be ideal if you could practice it daily, but who has the time for it, right?

Weather permitting, I try to spend time in nature as much as possible. I went for a walk the other day to do some photography of nature and the lovely animals. Not a single cat allowed me to photograph them!!! I could only get permission from a lovely squirrel.

My nature therapy always starts with a smiling tree. This tree is located only a few blocks away from our house.
Empty pathways…something expected from the second lockdown…
Colors in the fall
Smile! you are on camera!!!
I should probably go cycling more often

If you’d like to learn more about this natural therapy, please take a look at how forest bathing can make us feel better published by the Guardian. The article provides lots of useful information about shinrin-yoku benefits. And nature is one thing we should feel very grateful for, especially on a Thanksgiving day.

How often are you able to dedicate time to tap into the energies nature offers? Please share your favorite nature spots! I look forward to hearing from you:)
