005 - Another Green World

Episode description

This episode, we ditch the man-made world and run for the hills for a dose of nature’s own medicine: forest bathing.

We learn about the mental and physical benefits of engaging with the outdoors through the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku. We get pointers on how to talk to trees and find your forest bathing happy place from Julia Plevin and Sam Lazarus, founders of the Forest Bathing Club. And we take a look at how science and technology are trying to bring the benefits of the great outdoors to those with limited mobility or access to the outside world.
