For kids and adults alike - forest bathing is a wonderful natural well-being practice that is fun and calming
It's not about exercise but rather about being present and mindful in the forest. The practice encourages individuals to engage their senses, such as sight, sound, smell, and touch, to connect with nature and reduce stress.
If you've not tried forest bathing, it is highly recommended!
Research suggests that forest bathing can lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, improve mood, and enhance overall feelings of relaxation and well-being.
It's a simple yet effective way to reap the benefits of spending time in nature for one's health and mindfulness.
