Shinrin-yoku is the Japanese word for forest bathing. Forest bathing is immersing yourself in a soothing and relaxing forest where you soak in the sights, sounds and smells of nature. It's been proven time outside has a positive, restorative effect on your health and wellbeing. Nearly 40 years ago, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries proposed incorporating shinrin-yoku into daily life, and began designating national forest bathing reserves. Today, the Japanese Society of Forest Medicine continues to promote research on forest medicine and the benefits of forest bathing.
