Shinrin-yoku, literally ‘forest bath’, is a Japanese relaxation technique which involves spending time alone in a natural environment, typically a forest or woods. Using all five senses “it is an opportunity for people to take time out, slow down and connect with nature”. One of its chief proponents, Dr Qing Li, believes that regular forest bathing can help us avoid a long list of physical and mental ailments.
We’re a fan of anything that reconnects us with nature and allows us time to ourselves, though the likelihood of us heading into a forest at 6pm on a cold Wednesday evening after a long day of work is extremely low.
