A gentle reminder about the power of nature

Since Covid-19 happened to our lives, many of us might have increased – or wanted to – their contact with nature. In this post, you will find information about the physiological, psychological, and cognitive effects that a walk in the nature can have on human beings. Also known as “Forest bathing”, the Asian practice of Shinrun-Yoku involves being in the nature in order to reconnect with yourself, and use your senses to be present, in the moment. Using all of your senses is one of the main aspects in mindfulness, and it can bring great benefits that urban lifestyle often denies.

So if you are feeling low, want to boost your mood or help your body feel better, check out for the next wild park, hood or forest in your area. You will be surprised how much good can do to you.
