editor’sNOTE See the Forest for the Trees One of my favorite childhood memories is when my dad and I planted a few trees outside our new house. It was an up-and-coming subdivision at the time, and the lots were mostly dirt. These were the first trees to go up. Instantly, an aura of tranquility permeated the yard. And I experienced the power of trees to transform a space and affect my mood in a positive way. Trees are at the center of a practice called forest bathing. As Emily A. Kane, ND, LAc, explains on p. 22 (“How Forest Bathing Helps You Feel Better”), forest bathing is more than a walk in the woods. “The purpose is simply to ‘be’ in the presence of trees without any goal other than to allow the natural calming, healing potential of the forest to seep into your skin, eyes, and lungs.” The roots of forest bathing can be traced back to Japan. In the 1980s, the Japanese government coined the term forest bathing (shinrin-yoku), according to Hannah Fries, author of Forest Bathing Retreat (Storey Publishing, 2018). “Only relatively recently in evolutionary history have so many of us humans lived largely indoors—is it any wonder that our bodies, minds, and souls crave the outdoors?” asks Fries. Fall seems like the perfect time to experience the pleasure and benefits of forest bathing. Be among the trees and reap all of their healthy rewards.
