We all have different experiences with nature , and different reasons for wanting to connect with it.
A few weeks ago, one of our members @nirvana, brought up the idea of shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing” as technique for dealing with the ever-present stress and anxiety which seem to fill up lives. This inspired me to write about nature’s incredible power to heal on our blog.
What are your thoughts on Nature Therapy? What are some of the benefits of bringing more nature into your life? How about the times when it’s not possible to venture deep into the woods for a substantial period of time? Would you consider a creative alternative, such as Mudita Pause, to create a moment of reflection, which comes from exposure to nature? Studies have shown that even if we are not directly present in nature, having a view of trees from a window or viewing natural scenes can also be beneficial. Tell us about your experiences.
