This Japanese practice is a process of relaxation; know in Japan as shinrin yoku. The simple method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you whilst breathing deeply can help both adults and children de-stress and boost health and well-being in a natural way.
Heading for the trees is the perfect way to take time out. And science backs this up too. Research shows that spending time in the natural environment can improve our health and well-being.
