Doctors Prescribing Time Outdoors

Forest Bathing

At least 4 new studies suggest that connecting with nature improves our minds and moods. But you already knew that, right?

The benefits of spending time in forests was extensively researched in Japan in the 1980s. Researchers there found that just two hours in the woods could reduce blood pressure and stress hormones and boost concentration and memory. Further, chemicals released by trees called phytoncides actually boosted the immune system. The practice of forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, then grew into a national health program in Japan. It has since spread around the world, with sessions offered in parks from London to New York.

In the book ‘Last Child in the Woods’, Richard Louv cited 60 studies finding that time outside helped mental and physical health, and that too much time spent away from nature caused harm. His website 'Children & Nature Network' lists more 700, Louv recently told The New York Times.

Natural Medicine
Today, a growing number of Doctors are prescribing 'Time Outdoors'.

One doctor who was inspired by Louv's book was Dr. Robert Zarr, a Washington, DC pediatrician who started a nonprofit called Parks Rx America to make it easier for doctors to prescribe time in nature. The site has mapped and rated parks in the DC area and allows doctors to find parks near patients' homes.

Dr. Qing Li, who wrote ‘Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness’, provides the below primer in the practice. Try this out next time you find yourself stressed out and near some green space.

 
 
  “First, find a spot. Make sure you have left your phone and camera behind. You are going to be walking aimlessly and slowly. You don't need any devices. Let your body be your guide. Listen to where it wants to take you. Follow your nose. And take your time. It doesn't matter if you don't get anywhere. You are not going anywhere. You are savoring the sounds, smells and sights of nature and letting the forest in.

The key to unlocking the power of the forest is in the five senses. Let nature enter through your ears, eyes, nose, mouth, hands and feet. Listen to the birds singing and the breeze rustling in the leaves of the trees. Look at the different greens of the trees and the sunlight filtering through the branches. Smell the fragrance of the forest and breathe in the natural aromatherapy of phytoncides. Taste the freshness of the air as you take deep breaths. Place your hands on the trunk of a tree. Dip your fingers or toes in a stream. Lie on the ground. Drink in the flavor of the forest and release your sense of joy and calm. This is your sixth sense, a state of mind. Now you have connected with nature. You have crossed the bridge to happiness.”
 
 
 
 
 
   
"To find yourself…be in the moment.. and be connected.. I have found the key is to be still.. and listen to nature. From that clear space in your mind you can begin building a rejuvenated self and a future that has no limits."
-Dr Perry Zeus
