One of the most powerful ways to lower anxiety, improve mood, and boost the immune system, numerous studies show, is to walk in nature — specifically, walk slowly in nature, or forest-bathe.

Forest bathing is an emerging aspect of wellness. It encourages us to utilize our senses of touch, taste, smell, sight, and feel to absorb the tangible and imperceptible benefits of being in the natural world.

 The idea came from Japan, where forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, has been practiced since the 1980s as part of a national health program. Slow down, awaken your senses, and connect with nature as you experience a forest bathing walk while creating “A Healthier You” at Smith-Gilbert Gardens.

Free with Garden admission.
