Did you know, that visiting forest and moving around in the forest has a lot of beneficial health effects on our body and mind? For example, there are studies of following health benefits of being in nature: blood pressure and stress levels can be reduced, heart rate slows down, levels of anxiety, depression, irritation and restlessness can be reduced, recovery speeds up and immune defence can be strengthened. In general, just going in to the forest and spending time there has beneficial effects but they can be enhanced even more!
In the “Gone with the Forest” -nature experience we boost the natural recovery with effective breathing exercises, with ‘mindfulness-like’ exercises of calming down, by enjoying the wild tastes of nature, and by observing and using our senses.
Let the nature and the forest do its magic and take your stress away!
All the exercises are really simple and suitable for all. After the experience, you may easily take them to your daily life to support your well-being.
