FOREST BATHING

 

Embrace the benefits of slowing down by taking some time to go forest bathing, a wonderful way to recharge, connect with nature and regenerate our souls . Forest bathing means absorbing nature and bushland through our senses, Breath the eucalyptus, feel the textures of paperbark, listen to many sounds, observe carefully the many intricate designs not immediately apparent in the landscape.
The heart rate slows, blood pressure decreases, cortisol levels in the blood decline, sympathetic nervous system activity decreases and parasympathetic nervous system increase. This is a wonderful journey, take as long as you want.
