Shinrin Yoku

Forest bathing

Shinrin-yoku is a Japanese practice that encourages healing by way of surrounding yourself with nature. It literally means taking in the forest atmosphere. This therapeutic idea has many restorative and rejuvenating benefits, one of which is the reduction of stress by walking calmly through habitats where nature thrives. With many of us living in places where the tallest objects are towering concrete structures, it is important that we break away from the potential tensions we face to soak up the sights, smells, and sounds of nature that contribute to our well being.

You may be sitting at your desk right now wishing you were out in the thick of nature. Below we created a simulated version of Shinrin-yoku. Take a moment to listen to the sounds of nature as you slowly scroll through images reflecting the idea of forest bathing.
