By reconnecting to Mother Earth through forest bathing, you can experience the flowing nature of the world which reminds you to not be so stagnant. Now you don’t have to get in any water, simply immerse yourself in the natural surroundings of a forest or park. You can read, meditate, dine or listen to music there. Just be there!
