But Have You Tried Forest Bathing?

imagesMore experiments have  confirmed that nature–being in, looking at, smelling–is physically healing in a number of ways, as revealed in the July 25, 2016 issue of Time magazine, page 24.  In “The Healing Power of Nature,”  Alexandra Siffilin writes that for years the Japanese called it “forest bathing,” or shinrin-yoku, and it was believed to lower stress, but it hadn’t been proved.  Now a number of experiments have shown positive results.  If you’re stressed and your office doesn’t even have a window in it…what do  you expect?  I had heard previously that just taking time to look at one of those large nature posters can boost  your immune system.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
