Into the Forest: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness by Qing Li

Reconnecting with nature is not only good for our mental health, but it also improves our overall wellbeing. One of the ancient Japanese practices of Japanese people is called forest bathing also known as shinrin-yoku. The Japanese struggle with air pollution, and through the process of globalization, less and less green surfaces remain in the major cities. That’s why more and more people start to go away during the weekends in forests and participate in what is called shinrin-yoku.

Li explains in this short and sweet book what forest bathing is, how it can improve the health, how to do it, how often, and how to restore the broken connection with nature through the process of forest bathing. It’s an easy read, and perfect if you feel like you have completely isolated yourself from nature and are unsure where to begin in restoring your connection to nature.

Have you ever noticed how pleasant it is to walk barefoot on sand, grass or the ground? This is not just a relief after removing stiff shoes or shedding high heels. When you touch the ground with your bare feet, your body receives a dose of powerful healing electrons.

The Nature Fix by Florence Williams

Most of the time, we think that going to nature trips over the weekends or through the week is simply luxuries that we can’t afford. There is plenty to do in the city, right? However, the reality is that we are deeply connected with nature, and time spent in nature is not a luxury, but a necessity. In this witty, yet wise exploration through various practices and nature programs all over the world, Williams explains and shows how important connecting with nature is. This beautiful and powerful book is an amazing read that everyone should pick up!

We don’t experience natural environments enough to realize how restored they can make us feel, nor are we aware that studies also show they make us healthier, more creative, more empathetic and more apt to engage with the world and with each other. Nature, it turns out, is good for civilization.

The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, Jane Billinghurst, Tim Flannery

When you go into a forest, you feel beautiful calmness. And that’s for a good reason! All nature around you is alive and connected, oxygen levels are higher, and the trees whisper through their wide net of roots. In this beautiful book, it’s explained how threes are actually alive, how they can revitalize you, and how we should take care of them, and harness our connection to them. Its beautiful narration makes it easy to rid and understandable, and the abundance of facts, wisdom, and research helps in explaining the importance of connecting with nature. Definitely pick this one up!

The forest is really a gigantic carbon dioxide vacuum that constantly filters out and stores this component of the air.

The Nature Process by Tabitha Jayne

Nature is the universe with all its incredible phenomena including stars, galaxies, black holes, and planets. It’s also the magic at work that holds the universe together and the reality of existence. It’s also within us, our character and personality – our own personal nature. It’s the things we create such as cities and technology and experiences we have such as love-making and childbirth. In essence, everything is nature.
