    Great article. It’s inspired me to take a walk in Central Park. But first, how do I Tweet it?

      Forget it. My bad. I see the buttons on the left. I was looking on the bottom. 😉

        Good, because I wouldn’t have wanted that to stress you out.

    Thanks so much for looking into this. You make a good point that I have not read anywhere else about how humans were made to live in nature and being in a forest environment makes us relax almost intuitively. Great video too! Between forest bathing and singing, you’re covering it all! Thank you!

      thanks for the suggestion! It was a fun piece to investigate. Send us other ideas!

        Shall do!

    I have recently been to Norway for a business meeting and stayed in a hotel near the forest. Although it was too cold and snowing out there and I was not prepared to walk in forest, I just could not resist the temptation to do so. Then, each day throughout my stay I kept spending at least an hour in the forest. It was like an addiction because I felt so happy by just being in there. This story explains why.. Thanks a lot.

      Thanks for your comment, Haldun. Did the good feelings from the forest stay with you during your meetings?

        Well, difficult to say or explain. It was a bit tense not only because of the subjects discussed but also due to being inside a concrete building. But even the thought of going back into the forest afterwards helped in easing the tension. It was like expecting to see somebody dear to you after a long while. Yes, they indeed stayed with me.
