Forest Therapy: Seasonal Ways to Embrace Nature for a Happier You
Would you believe that spending time in nature can be the best form of therapy? In today’s fast-paced, high-stress life, the key to happiness and contentment may be as simple as disconnecting from technology and reconnecting with Mother Earth.
Author Sarah Ivens spent her childhood playing outside. As she grew into adulthood, she spent an increasing amount of time indoors. Her happiness decreased and stress levels rose. She couldn’t figure out what was missing until she started coming across forest-therapy research. In her book, Ivens dives into scientific research proving the health benefits of spending time in the forest and offers seasonal activities to get you and your family outside. Forest Therapy offers simple ideas for connecting with nature each season.
The research in this book is not ground-breaking. It’s not anything you haven’t heard before (most likely). But it is fun and engaging and brimming with reminders to live more mindfully. Get outdoors, breathe in the essence of the pine trees, and lower your blood pressure and stress hormones today. Your healthier immune system and lifted spirits will thank you.
