Forest Bathing For Fibromyalgia

Immersing Yourself in Nature

Unfortunately, it can be a real struggle for anyone with fibromyalgia to walk into the woods and take part in forest bathing. However, according to studies, Shinrin-yoku does not really require you to physically walk into the forest or climb uphill. All it takes is to immerse into nature’s sights, sounds and smell. If done along with meditation, Shinrin-yoku can help to ease your fibromyalgia symptoms. Practicing forest bathing along with meditation helps to minimize the stress and depression of living with fibromyalgia symptoms.
