I recently read that nature walks 🏃🏽♀️have a variety of positive +++ health ❤️benefits. Benefits include a decrease in blood pressure, anxiety, stress, depression and an increase in energy, mood, brain and emotional health. And of course-sleeping better. In fact, the Japanese call therapeutic nature walks 🏃🏽♀️”Forest Bathing.” 🌲🌲🌲🌲- immersion in a forest for the purpose of relaxation and recreation to enhance physical and mental health.
Fortunately, after the move to our new place, we discovered we are surrounded by beautiful nature trails 🌲🌲🌲🌲 ! So ☀️Saturday morning after breakfast 🍳 C and I enjoyed a walk in the nature trails for some much needed “Forest Bathing.” We were graced with the coolest weather we’ve had in all of May. During the three mile adventure, we encountered several hikers, bikers and runners also making the most of the gorgeous scenery.
In our season of less with more time to enjoy simple pleasures we will definitely be Forest Bathing 🌲🌲🌲🌲 much more often for the purpose of relaxation and recreation- the health benefits will just be icing on the cake.
