Forest Bathing is a cross between a slow walk and a deep meditation done in the woods. There are books, spas and other resources that make the practice accessible and easy to experience. It is because of how beneficial it is that it makes a perfect gift for this holiday season.
Forest Bathing is about focusing on where you are. When you do that surrounded by nature, research has found it actually has health benefits. You de-stress better and faster, AND can actually reduce depression symptoms. The benefits go beyond mental wellness though. Studies show that your white blood cell counts elevate for up to seven days after a trip into nature, so you are, literally, less likely to get sick.
