Forest bathing

Forest bathing is the practice of taking a short, leisurely visit to a forest for health benefits.

I was indeed surprised to find an article of this phenomenon, “forest bathing”. For example in Japan, the local authorities (according to Wikipedia) have suggested as early as 1982, that walking in the forest is a way to relieve stress and help maintain healthy lifestyle.
