In a time when we're constantly swamped with never-ending to-do lists, pausing to spend time in nature and soak up the restorative power of the natural world has never been more important.

Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing, is the practice of spending time in the forest for greater health, a strengthened immune system, happiness and a sense of calm. A pillar of Japanese culture for decades, Shinrin-Yoku will help you slow down and reconnect with nature, from walking mindfully in the woods, to a break in your local park, to simply walking barefoot on your lawn.

Forest Medicine expert, Dr Qing Li's research has proven that spending time around trees, filling your home with house plants and vaporising essential tree oils can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy levels, strengthen your immune system and even help you to lose weight. Along with his years of ground-breaking research and anecdotes on the transformative power of trees, Dr Li has created the ultimate practical guide on how to experience the mental, physical and emotional benefits of Shrinrin-Yoku for yourself.

Get back to nature with Dr Qing Li and ground yourself in something greater.
