In which I am introduced to “forest bathing” (link)

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”    John Muir

One of the blessings that came out of this week’s Masterpiece Living/Positive Aging Conference was being introduced by Dr. Peter Whitehouse to the Japanese practice of forest bathing ~  shinrin-yoku,  the sense of peace, calm, well-being we get simply walking in the woods.

For more about the health benefits of forest bathing, check out my posting over on Rx4Caregivers.
