If any of you love the great out doors, you know the wonderful feeling that comes along with escaping from reality and immersing yourself in nature. Notice how rejuvenated you feel afterwards? This form of therapy is called “nature bathing,” a term coined in Japan.
Even if you don’t have all day to spend in the wilderness, a 20 minute walk through your neighborhood park will do the trick. So take a stroll and focus on the beautiful visuals, sounds, and smells around you.
The goal is to relax and recharge, which starts by regulating your breathing. Nature bathing is a method that is known to reduce stress and anxiety. Incorporate this ritual into your weekly routine, and you will surely improve your health, happiness, and quality of life.
