Walking in nature is good for the body AND soul. In Japan there is a practice known as “forest bathing” where people purposefully walk in the woods for rejuvenation.
Thankfully, even in a busy city like Toronto, it is possible to get away from the hustle and bustle, smog, and noise by wandering along sheltered tree lined pathways.
This photo was taken while enjoying time on a path near by my home. The over-reaching branches of the trees provide a sense of protection and privacy, while the sun breaking through invites feelings of freedom, joy, hope and happiness. It’s a place to re-center your soul, reflect, dream, decompress, de-stress – help your body, mind AND spirit become one again.
