The practice of shinrin-yoku emerged in Japan during the 1980s. It means "taking in forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." Scientists believe in the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a forest.
Spending time in nature, taking relaxing walks in the outdoors… they have calming, rejuvenating and restorative effects on people.
This photo was taken during the first shinrin-yoku of a person, my daughter, who was still in the womb back then.
