Forest bathing, or Shinrin-yoku is a form of therapy that involves immersing yourself in nature. Spending time with nature has the power to have positive impacts on our mood and boost our wellbeing, which is becoming increasingly important in our ever-developing world.
With enhancements in technology, urban areas growing, it’s essential that people have access to green spaces to engage with nature to learn, relax and enjoy it.
We often think about our health in purely physical terms. Sickness or injury to our bodies is easy to see and we’ll visit our doctor to seek treatment. On the other hand, our mental health is something that we don’t always act on. This is because we are unsure about its cause and believe that it will just get better.
