We got up early today as we had the lovely Lola overnight. It’s a bit grey, drizzling and windy but it’s not particularly cold.
The ground was wet and there were leaves falling. There was a lovely earthy smell in the air and I love that.
Whilst I was away on holiday last week I read a book about forest bathing called into the forest, How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness by Dr Qing, Li it’s a really interesting little book and would make a lovely present for someone. It explains the proven benefits between nature and wellbeing. How the smells from the different trees, ground and leaves have healing properties and are proven to reduce stress, Improve energy level, reduce blood pressure and boost immunity. It talks about the benefits of walking barefoot, watching the sunset, listening to the wind etc. Interesting considering humans spend 90% of our lives indoors!
