Forest Bathing, Shinrin-Yoku, Japan
Forest bathing. Has anything ever sounded so refreshing?
If you’re in need of a tech hiatus (and we all are), with a potent dose of nature, oxygen, vitamin D and happiness, head to Japan (of course), where 67% of the country is covered in forests with trails dedicated to the practice of Shinrin-yoku.
Leave your smartphones, tablets, laptops and frown lines at home and spend your time fully engaging all your senses in the beauty of the forest. Simply being outdoors can do wonders for your spirit and psyche.
In fact, forest bathing has been shown to significantly reduce stress levels and depression. Plus, you’ll be in the land of sushi and cherry blossoms – nirvana, in other words.
