Berlin has 29 district forestries within the city limits. Although you don’t have to be deep in the forest to gain the benefits of a forest bath. You can find clusters of trees in larger parks of many cities. Go stand there, relax and breath. If you can’t find a patch of trees, watch these videos. You can gain benefits even without the tree chemicals.
The forest bath was developed in Japan, where stressed out workers travel to a forest outside of Tokyo and sit quietly among the trees as a form of outdoor meditation. Part of the beauty of the forest is the light falling through the leaves, the various gradations of color and the movements of the branches which I look to capture with my camera.
