Real Forest Bathing

The Japanese call it Shinrin-yoku; breathing in the forest air which is likened to nature’s aroma therapy. We managed to get out of the city over the school holidays and did a bit of Shinrin-yoku in the bush in Whakapirau.

It made me think that I should  make an effort to connect with the earth at least once a day and do more forest bathing when possible. Whether it be getting my bare feet on the grass, hands in the garden or sit and take time to watch the sky, the calm and aura of the earth is humbling.
