Forest bathing

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. —Albert Camus


Long before work e-mail and social media started screaming for our attention 24/7, some wise government officials in Japan coined the phrase Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) to encourage people to become healthier by taking strolls in the forest. I love the idea of bathing in a forest, that feeling of being submerged beneath the green (or glorious fall colors), far from the tribulations of an overflowing inbox. Turn off your phone, go for a walk in the woods, and slowly you will learn to slow down, observe, listen, be calmer. What do I do when work becomes insanely busy? Turn off my computer and go for a walk in the woods. I never regret it. If you don't have woods, go for a walk in a park, or on a quiet street. Enjoy the sun on your face, and the fresh air. You won't regret it.
