Shinrin-Yoku

The main focus for this short piece is a practice called Shinrin-Yoku, a Japanese medicine introduced by Japan in 1982 - also known as forest bathing.

I am a firm believer that being outside and surrounded by nature is good for you. It does something. It inspires and refreshes, de-stresses and clears the mind. From having urban planters in the office, to travelling in remote locations for months at a time, we can reconnect and de-stress from daily living. Natural environments still help humans after all these years of change and urbanisation.
