50 Shades of Green - Forest Bathing 🌲🛀🌲 | 绿色森林浴
Shinrin-yoku is a Japanese term that means "forest bathing," and was coined by the Ministry of Agriculture in the 1980s. They promote people immersing themselves in nature as a means of self-healing. Shinrin-yoku not only sounds lovely, but it also has health benefits like decreasing stress hormones and heart rate.
Last weekend, I did Shinrin-yoku walking in Luxembourg's forests. Now, for this week's WednesdayWalk, I'd like to share some of the "green" photos I took from there. It happened in the woods by the Lake Sûre on the River Sûre's south bank.
As you can see from my pictures here, it's an extraordinarily lush green place in the summer. I began the walk after some light rain at noon and finished it as the sun set. Look at all the different shades of green, the sun rays filtered through the trees, and the turquoise lake's shimmering water. Listen to the chirping of birds and the rustling of leaves. Take in the crisp, earthy aroma of petrichor... All of these sights, sounds and smells were seeping into me. Simply revitalizing!
It's just so therapeutic to be surrounded by trees and nourished by nature, isn't it? I hope you enjoy this green forest bathing as I did! 😃

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)
Thanks! Soaking up nature is indeed refreshing. :)
it truly is, next time I walk in a forest the term will come to mind :)
I have been "forest bathing" for decades and it´s one of my favorite outdoor activities but it was not until recently that I found out that the Japanese have this beautiful term for this :) Amazing pictures btw!
