Nature bathing? It’s a thing and comes with numerous benefits. It’s simply spending time outdoors and immersing yourself in nature. But, how does one enjoy nature bathing with Jack Frost nipping at your nose?

Here are 5 Ideas for Nature Bathing in Winter:

  1. Don’t let winter weather discourage you from stepping outside. Bundle up and enjoy some fresh air, even if for just a few minutes.
  2. Bring nature indoors. House plants allow you to immerse yourself in greenery year-round.
  3. Try soothing your senses with a woodsy candle or natural oils.
  4. Add visualization into your meditation mix. Imagine the sounds of the forest as a gentle breeze blows through the trees.
  5. Relax in a hot spring… or a hot tub if you have one.
