Fresh air phobia? Discover a slow, mindful way of walking that heals the soul and mends the heart—and let all your senses bathe in the pleasures that the forest has to offer. Heal yourself by connecting deeply with nature. Fill your lungs with fresh forest air, which has cancer-fighting chemicals called phytoncides that can lower blood pressure, decrease levels of stress, and reduce muscle tension. Including 75 inspirational quotes, this guide teaches you how to benefit from what the Japanese call “the medicine of the forest” by leaving the hustle and bustle behind and soaking up the silence. Through focusing on the things you see and hear, staying aware of your environment, and being present in the moment, you’ll improve your health and well-being.

This is one of my best books!

Find Beauty Everywhere

Embrace the ancient Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi and learn to appreciate the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. When you let go of judgment, you can see the harmony in the unfinished, fleeting, modest, and simple things in life. That’s the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, and it helps you find beauty everywhere. Using drawings, quotes, and photographs, this book helps you understand the essence of this idea and apply it to our everyday world. Celebrate the wabi sabi spirit by embracing gratitude and self-acceptance, trusting in time, focusing on what matters most, and celebrating with such traditions as the Japanese tea ceremony, communing with elders, and family rituals. Japanese monks describe Wabi Sabi as “reaching an appreciation of what is really important in life by eliminating everything which is not essential.”

So is this!

Go Outside

Embrace the great outdoors and see how spending time in nature can improve your mental, physical, and spiritual health with this beautifully illustrated guide to the Norwegian concept of "friluftlsiv." Translated from Norwegian as "free life air," friluftsliv highlights the basic need for humans to get outside and connect with the natural world. It’s not about conquering nature, as in climbing the highest mountain, or about camping and other activities: it’s about truly finding harmony and becoming one with the outdoors. Whether you live in the city or out in the countryside, this inspiring guide will show you how to enter a friluftsliv state of mind. Simply spending time in nature, even when it’s something as simple as a Sunday walk in a local park, can improve your well-being and encourage productive self-reflection. The working title of this book was Forest Bathing with Mittens.
