IMAGINE FOR A MOMENT HOW YOUR LIFE WOULD LOOK IF YOU LIVED IT THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD.
HOW WOULD IT FEEL?
We have the capacity to live life in this way, full of joy, wonder, and excitement. This potential never leaves us.
But our modern day lives do a good job of keeping us feeling bored, serious and stuck. Instead of being encouraged to laugh, play, do what we love, and express ourselves as who we truly are, we are pressured to work hard, then even harder, so that we can pay off mortgages and keep up with workplace demands. We are obligated to look, dress and act a certain way so that we fit the standards of our job, and our inner happiness and wellbeing are often compromised in the process.
It’s no wonder that stress is so common.
And the cement, fluorescent lighting, and electronic radiation that we surround ourselves with aren’t making it any better. The impact of this stress not only makes it hard to relax and enjoy life, but it is detrimental to our health, contributing to anxiety, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, and many chronic illnesses.
Thankfully, there is a way for us to reclaim the joyful wellness that we deserve to have – reconnect with nature.
IT’S HOW WE ARE MEANT TO BE.
Deeply happy, truly healthy, living to the fullest, in love with life.
FOREST BATHING sessions are all about forgetting your chores, obligations and to-do lists, shaking off the seriousness of life and energizing yourself in the joy of being alive in the present moment, surrounded by the beauty of nature.
They are about letting go of the stress and worry in your life and deeply enjoying the richness of simple things, like watching the trees dance in the wind, feeling the fuzzy texture of a newly discovered plant, or walking barefoot in the mud. And, they are about filling yourself up with love for the Earth, and experiencing the love she has for you in return.
The practice of forest bathing has so many benefits:
It can help you alleviate stress, anxiety, depression and many physical problems (such as acid reflux and high blood pressure), so that you can feel like yourself instead of like wanting to avoid life.
It opens up your senses, bringing you more in touch with who you truly are and what your intention is for your life, so that you can live with purpose and meaning.
It encourages the cultivation of joy, love, inspiration and excitement in your life.
It helps you to reclaim your energy for your passion projects and special people.
