This episode, we ditch the man-made world and run for the hills for a dose of nature’s own medicine: forest bathing.
We learn about the mental and physical benefits of engaging with the outdoors through the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku. We get pointers on how to talk to trees and find your forest bathing happy place from Julia Plevin and Sam Lazarus, founders of the Forest Bathing Club. And we take a look at how science and technology are trying to bring the benefits of the great outdoors to those with limited mobility or access to the outside world.
Thanks to Julia Plevin and Sam Lazarus of the Forest Bathing Club for sharing their knowledge of forest bathing in all its forms this episode! If you’d like to join a future forest bath, you can sign up at forestbathing.club.
