Forest bathing – big benefits, shrinking spaces

Amen for an article in today’s New York Times on the deep health benefits of forest bathing – aka a walk in the woods.  It might be news to the NY Times, but it is also good old-fashioned common sense, the sort that our grandmothers knew – “Turn of the television & get outside!”  

One of the reasons our older friends do so well is because we get them OUT, get them into the woods – and the meadows & mountains, the seaside & parks.  But it’s getting harder & harder as precious open spaces shrink more & more.

Forest bathing, walk in the woods, communing with nature – – it delivers great health benefits for ALL of us!
