Forest Bathing For Fibromyalgia

For those who are not up for a forest hike, you can choose to visit your local federal or state parks to practice Shinrin-yoku and meditation. You can either do it alone or invite friends to join you. The local parks are usually well maintained. In fact, most of them are disable friendly. So even if you are struggling from the painful symptoms of fibromyalgia, you can access the park with ease.

Another option is to simply practice it in your own backyard. If your yard has a decent amount of plants and trees, then you can utilize it for forest bathing. Spend a few minutes in your yard each day. Take in the sounds of the birds, flowing water and swaying leaves. Enjoy the beauty of nature and breathe in fresh air.
