What is Forest Bathing & Benefits
Have you ever taken a stroll through the woods and felt your mood lighten? If so, you’ve experienced the benefits of forest Bathing, also known as Shinrin-yoku. Forest bathing is a Japanese practice that means “taking in the forest atmosphere.”
Spending time in nature can have positive effects on your health, including reducing stress, improving moods, reduces blood pressure, improving heart health, and improving sleep quality. Forest bathing also strengthens your immune system by exposing you to phytoncides (airborne chemicals emitted by plants).
So add this to your itinerary for when you head to the Yorkshire Coast, but be warned, you might not want to leave!
