Shinrin-yuoku – take a forest bath and stay healthy

Studies from all around the world show that spending time in nature, and specifically forests, are good for our health.

Being exposed to trees and green areas has many positive health effects. Here are some of the benefits:

• reduces stress
• boosts the immune system
• lowers blood pressure
• increases our ability to focus
• accelerates recovery from surgery or illness
• increases energy level
• improves sleep

The Japanese have a special term for it: shinrin-yoku, and their Ministry of of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries encourages people to visit forests to improve health. And since spending just a few minutes in a green space has a positive effect, there aren’t really any excuses not to immerse yourself in a soothing forest bath every now and then.
