Taking nature walks has been proven to be beneficial for our well-being. In Japan, they call it shinrin-yoku — literally, “forest bathing.” Walking in nature can help us reduce stress, soothe our minds and improve our overall mental health.
Walking together with our children can be a great way to connect and spend quality time together. You can play games such as “I spy” or do a scavenger hunt. You can use that time to check in with each other and share stories.
