‘Forest Bathing’ is a nature-connection practice that almost everyone can take part in, that will benefit your physical, emotional and cognitive functioning. It is increasingly recognised as a preventative approach to healthcare - a kind of ‘forest medicine’. Spending time in forested or wooded areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellbeing and happiness has been practiced in Japan for centuries and is referred to as ‘Shinrin-yoku’. This translates as ‘Forest Bathing’, but it is also sometimes referred to as ‘Forest Therapy’ or ‘Silvotherapy’.
