“The best way to deal with stress at work is to go for a forest bath. I go for shinrin-yoku every lunchtime. You don’t need a forest; any small green space will do. Leave your cup of coffee and your phone behind and just walk slowly. You don’t need to exercise, you just need to open your senses to nature. It will improve your mood, reduce tension and anxiety, and help you focus and concentrate for the rest of the day.”

“Wszędzie panuje tak duży hałas, że większość ludzi nie ma już okazji rozkoszować się kojącym brakiem uciążliwych odgłosów cywilizacji. Naturalną ciszę uznano za jeden z najbardziej zagrożonych zasobów na naszej planecie.”
Qing Li, Shinrin-Yoku: The Art and Science of Forest Bathing
“Wszyscy znamy cudowny zapach lasu po ulewie. Kiedy długo nie pada, w glebie i na skałach gromadzą się olejki roślinne. To jeden ze sposobów roślin na przetrwanie okresów suszy. Podczas deszczu woda uwalnia przechowywane w podłożu olejki, a powietrze wypełnia się ich zapachem.

On również ma swoją nazwę, petrichor, od greckich słów petra, czyli "kamień", i ichor, którym opisywano esencję płynącą w żyłach bogów zamiast krwi. Zatem petrichor znaczy dosłownie "esencja kamienia". To zapach życia!”

“Czy zwróciłeś kiedyś uwagę, jak przyjemnie chodzi się boso po piasku, trawie albo ziemi?Nie bierze się to tylko z ulgi po zdjęciu sztywnych butów albo zrzuceniu wysokich obcasów. Kiedy dotykasz podłoża bosymi stopami, twój organizm otrzymuję dawkę potężnych leczniczych elektronów.”

By 2050, 75 per cent of the world’s projected 9 billion population will live in cities.”

“Susanoo-no-Mikoto plucked one of the hairs from his beard and transformed it into a sugi tree. Then he plucked a hair from his breast and turned it into a cypress tree. He took one from his buttock and turned that into a black pine tree, and one from his eyebrow, which he turned into a laurel.”

“How to do shinrin-yoku in the park Leave behind your phone, camera, music and any other distractions Leave behind your expectations Slow down; forget about the time Come into the present moment Find a spot to sit – on the grass, beside a tree or on a park bench Notice what you can hear and see Notice what you feel Stay for two hours if possible (though you will begin to notice the effects after twenty minutes)”

“Frederick Law Olmsted, who said that ‘enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquillizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body, gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system’. In other words, parks are very relaxing and restorative places to be.”
