My mother sent me an article earlier this year about how being in nature can boost your immune system and mood. The Japanese even have a term for seeking this benefit…”Shinrin Yoku” or “Forest Bathing”. It isn’t news that being in nature can be good for your health, but I like that there’s a word for it.
Everything is very brown and dormant in my part of the world right now so I wanted to create something inexorably green and (hopefully) peaceful to close out the crazy year that was 2020. If you can’t get to a forest I will bring one to you 🙂
