What can improve the length and quality of your sleep by over 15%? What can improve your chance of avoiding colds and diseases by over 50%? What can boost your mood better than any prescribed antidepressant? The answer: A walk in the woods. In How Trees Can Help You Find Happines...s, Dr. Qing Li presents forest bathing as the practice of spending time in the woods for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. A pillar of Japanese culture for decades, forest bathing (known as Shinrin-Yoku to locals) is a way to reconnect with nature. As one of the world's leading Immunologists, Dr Qing Li has conducted extensive research which has proved that spending time around trees (such as filling your home with house plants and vaporising essential tree oils) can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost your immune system and even help you to lose weight. Along with his years of ground-breaking research, anecdotes on the life-changing power of trees, Dr Li provides a practical approach for you to take up forest bathing.
