Forest Therapy or Shinrin-Yoku is a practise that started in Japan during the 1980’s. Scientific research can now back up the healing benefits derived from simply being in the forest in a mindful way. It also gives us a chance to appreciate our forests and green spaces and encourages us to take more care of them.
These are some of the benefits reported after just 2 hours of Forest Therapy:
- Helps you sleep better
- Improves and elevates mood
- Lowers heart rate and blood pressure
- Boosts immune system
- Has an anti inflammatory effect
- Lowers blood sugar levels
- Stimulates creative energy
- Reduces stress and overwhelm
