Researchers have discovered that spending time in a forest — aka “forest bathing” — can do wonders for both mind and body. Studies show it can help lower blood pressure, boost immune cell activity and reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
It's little wonder that the sights and sounds of nature are good for us. Babbling brooks, rustling leaves, chirping birds. Don’t you feel better already?
When you can, try to go to local park, or even your back yard and spend a little time in nature. But for a mid-week escape, you can watch the video below. Make sure to go full screen for maximum effect ;)
