"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses
put in order."
John Burroughs, (American Essayist and Naturalist, 1837-1921)
If you are like me in that you retreat to Nature for solace and healing, you will want to read these articles: Find Therapeutic Healing in 'Forest Bathing' and Forest Bathing for more information about Shinrin-yoku or forest bathing which is a Japanese tradition of therapeutic walks in the forest. Now you have a name and some supporting science for what you already knew to be true!
