Forest bathing doesn't actually involve getting in the water, so you can leave your towel and soap at home because you won't be taking a bath. Forest bathing simply means you take a stroll through nature. Your only goal is to pay attention to the sense, sounds, and scenery around you. It may help you relax, plus it will get you moving. Some small study suggests that spending time in nature or green spaces could benefit your blood pressure and pulse rate. And another study found that improving green space around where people live can actually reduce crime. But regardless of what the studies say, forest bathing is a healthy way to unplug from our fast-paced world.
