Find Your Calm in Louisiana’s Special Places
In Japan, people practice something called forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku. Shinrin means “forest,” and yoku means “bath,” hence the term. The basic idea behind this practice is to simply be in nature and let your senses of sight, touch, smell, hearing, and taste be fully utilized to experience the peace and calm nature can bring. People today are more disconnected from nature than we’ve ever been. Indeed, the average American spends 93% of their time indoors. And yet now, more than ever, people need a place where they can find ease, get perspective on their worries, and reconnect with themselves and others.
Spring is nature’s anthem of hope after a dark season. Trees are budding, birds are chirping and life is regenerating. No matter where you are and what you have going on, we recommend finding regular time for a “cleanse” in nature.
