Did you know that Nature Therapy or shinrin-yoku (“forest bathing”) emerged in Japan in the 1980s to offer an eco-antidote to tech-boom city burnout and to inspire us to reconnect with local forests?
So, what are the benefits:


😎 reduced stress – being in nature lowers your stress hormone cortisol levels. And remember the cortisol steal? The less cortisol your body has to make, the more oestrogen and progesterone (and testosterone) is being made instead 👍.


😝 improved mood – green spaces can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, boost self-esteem, and improve your “brain fog”.


🏃‍♀️more movement and natural vitamin D – which will help with healthy weight and prevent osteoporosis.


Walking, hiking, gardening – it all counts!


Extra bonuses of being outdoors are:

👍 better sleep

👍 lower blood pressure and heart rate

👍 boost in the immune response and

👍 a quicker recovery from illness

Are you feeling inspired to re-connect with nature near you?🌳
