We live in changing times and it is easy for this uncertainty to manifest itself as worry and stress. Couple that with the restrictions on movement and lack of socialisation, it has never been more important to ensure that you focus on your own physical and mental wellbeing. Let’s face it, most of us have plenty of time on our hands and so don’t really have an excuse not to!
The Japanese have Shinrin-Yoku or forest bathing to you and me. It means simply spending time in nature. It’s not running or biking, rather taking time and using your senses to consciously connect with what’s around you. They say Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between us and the natural world.
If the lockdown period has been getting you down, the simple tips in the video below will help you to reset and get back onto a path of mindfulness. Stay safe and enjoy your time in the mountains, phone your friends and eat nice food!
