Episode ##32: Forest Therapy for Healing and Wellbeing
In this episode, I talk about forest therapy, sometimes referred to as forest bathing.
Learn all about this wonderful therapy, which has been scientifically proven to boost your immune system, reduce stress, increase energy, unleash creativity, decrease anxiety, enhance memory, and improve sleep (to name just a few).
I explain why we humans are meant to be in nature, what we can learn from our ancestors and indigenous people, and I share a few of the studies that confirm what we already know.
I take you through what forest therapy is all about and explain how to use each of your five senses to bathe in nature's beauty for benefit.
