    Six months ago I moved full time to London after years of living in the English countryside I had lived very near a large woodland, and walking in it was part of my weekly and seasonal routine Snowdrops, then crocuses, daffodils, then drifts of bluebells represented the spring the summer was a canopy of green, cool even in the hottest weather and autumn was glorious with burnished colour Even in winter, because of the high concentration of conifers, the woodland had a dark green density to it I was aware that those woodland walks were beneficial to me not just in terms of my physical health, but also mental and emotional but in some sense it was also something I took for granted I am fortunate to live, now in London, very near Hampstead Heath because despite the many large parks in London, the Heath is one of the few places in that sprawling metropolis where a person can actually find nature of a wilder, less cultivated kind During the autumn, I found myself taking long walks rambles, really, where I would quite deliberately lose myself and the beauty of the landscape was a kind of ecstasy that was a very dramatic counterpoint to the depression that I often felt after ending my long marriage and living alone for the first time in 25 years At some point during this time, I first hea...

    What is forest bathing It s time spent in forests parks, walking, sitting, eating, practicing tea ceremony etc for the good of your physical mental health, appreciating nature s beauty The author is an expert on this subject there are many, many pictures of the forests here, so you can probably use them also to get some experience.This book talks about forests especially in Japan, but one can easily apply this form of nature enjoyment, and the tips within, to other places around the world some non Japanese parks are shown in the map at the end Even a small amount of time there works, though the author recommends longer times for a bigger effect.In Japan, forest bathing since 1982 is quite popular There is a religious and folkloric connection to it, and further things like using scents, having onsen baths near them, having centres dedicated to forest bathing information in certain places, and so on.The author talks about various ways the forest park helps us through our senses smell using scents through oil, incense, the wood material , taste making tea or food out of certain plants , touch touching trees, walking barefoot , hearing nature sounds , sight forest view speeding healing, the colors,...

    My review of this book could be summed up in one hyphenated word Life changing.Shinrin yoku is the practise of taking time out of our technologically overloaded and overstimulated lives and allowing the power of nature s presence to consume and calm us The benefits of doing so can impact every area of our lives and this book delivers startling figures and scientific discoveries that prove just how The prosaic writing style was enough to convince me, but this book also delivers written testimonies, a multitude of studies to back the initial hypotheses, and a string of data to convert the most analytically minded or disbelieving of readers.Asides from guiding the reader to a life lived closer to nature s pacifying presence, this book is also a helpful instructional guide on scents and their specific effect on the body, species of tree and the aid they can give to humans, essential oils and their properties, and a whole host of other interesting information that had me note jotting throughout my reading of this.As one who was already in the process of allowing nature to creep its way in to my everyday life, this book was preaching to the converted I can, however, not foresee any individual being immune to the breath taking imagery and the lush prose that helped to demonstrate the power of forest bathing Dr Qing Li has expertly made the proces...

    I grew up in a forest I got married in a forest I live in a house surrounded by trees.I m a tree person.How lovely, then, to read this book that shares all the many benefits of trees on our lives Note this is a library book, but I d now like to get a copy of my own so that I can think carefully ...

    How sad and ironic that a book about the benefits of trees should waste so much paper, where the text on each page uses only 1 4 1 3 of the space and also used a large font I found it too anecdotal and not very linear in its topic Pretty pictures of forests though.
