"Shinrin Yokin" is the Japanese term meaning "Forest Bathing". Isn't that perfect?!! Now when I go out into nature, I tell my friends I am going "forest bathing". The Japanese have done studies showing that even 20 minutes in the forest reduces stress hormone levels, has a positive impact on one's immune system and slows respiration and heart rate. In other words, forest bathing is GOOD FOR YOU!!! I knew this long before I ever read these studies. "Shinrin Yokin"...what wonderful medicine!
This beautiful forest path was captured at Tow Hill on Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands). I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience this magical place.
