Everybody needs a little sunshine…

It’s been a while and hope everyone is well and healthy. During these unprecedented times, some of us probably feel anxious and overwhelmed by all the uncertainty. Therefore it is essential for us to find ways to lift our spirits and mental well-being.

One of my favorite restorative activities is forest bathing or Shinrin-Yoku (森林浴). Spending some mindful time in the forest helps me to recharge and reconnect myself with nature. It also brings me a calm and peaceful state of mind.

One of the things that I enjoy while taking a stroll in the woods is Komorebi (木漏れ日). In Japanese, Komorebi means the ray of sunlight that filters through tree leaves. It also describes the feeling of nostalgia for a person, place or thing that is far away from you.

I like the gentle touch of light that makes its way through the leaves to reach my face, it seems trying to comfort and tell me that no matter what happens in life everything will be alright in the end. “Hakuna Matata!”

What are your favorite activities everyone?
