shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and researchers believe the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest.   If a person simply visits a natural area and walks in a relaxed way, there are calming, rejuvenating and restorative benefits to be achieved.   This photo was taken during the first shinrin-yoku of a person, my daughter, who was in the mother's womb back then.
