Wellness in the Woods

  • 4:30 p.m.

No burpees, squats or jumping jacks here — just relax with a slow, meditative walk in the woods. Let the effects of shinrin-yoku, or Forest Breathing, naturally reduce your stress levels and promote healing. This is due to various wood essential oils, called phytoncides, which trees emit to protect themselves from insects. Breathing in these forest "vitamins" helps improve the body's immune system.
