Forest Therapy Benefits
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Studies have found that forest therapy significantly reduces cortisol levels, the primary stress hormone. It lowers blood pressure, heart rate, and stress-related nervous activity.
Boosts Mood and Mental Well-Being
The natural chemicals emitted by the trees ignite happy hormones such as dompamine and serotonin, improving mood and increasing feelings of happiness.
Enhances Focus and Concentration
Forest therapy brings our attention back to the present moment and the natural environment. The practice enhances focus and concentration and helps to calm busy minds.
Many who engage in regular forest bathing report feeling more energetic and rejuvenated. Combining fresh air, physical activity, and time spent in nature works wonders to uplift your mood and boost energy levels.
