Forest Bathing

Something my brother said to me after a top scholar-athlete at his inner-city school committed suicide just kind of sticks to me. He referred to a “new despair” among the kids he is teaching. I’ve been trying to get a lot of the kids I work with to be more active and take advantage of the natural world ‘s ability to heal us monkeys. This is not meant to be a panacea but rather a way to supplement other good habits. The woman who wrote this Outside Magazine article has a new book with, I’m told pretty good science behind it. I’ll probably pick up the book and see for myself but here is the old article.
If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you.

That's fine for the younger kids. The older kids want Sexual Healing à la Marvin Gaye.

I can vouch for the power of walking the woods for helping organize thoughts. Probably won't answer questions but lets you know what you know and discard fragments of thoughts that aren't complete and just clutter up your thinking.
Works on horseback too, if you're comfortable with the horse.
Everything is interesting... look closer.
