Pause, Savor & Breathe with Long Exhales–Garden Bathing

Late Summer Flower GardenConsider a new take on “Forest bathing”. “Forest bathing is taking time to unwind and connect with nature to improve your health. Simply put: Forest bathing is retreating to nature to immerse in the forest atmosphere. The practice originated in Japan in the late 1980’s and was coined by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as “Shinrin-yoku,” which roughly translated means “forest bathing.””

So “Garden Bathe” with these garden images from landscapes I’ve lovingly designed. I’m a garden maker and think gardens can add to our lives.

Here’s how:

Pause, savor, and breathe with long exhales while you immerse yourself in these images.

And/ Or:  Imagine yourself sitting on the field-stone slab steps. Feel embraced by this garden. Feel the soft tassels of the grasses. Feel the sun warming you. Listen to birdsong. Walk barefoot on the lawn. Breathe with long exhales.

I intend to post new garden images frequently. Enjoy!
