It’s no secret that slowing down, being intentional, and getting fresh air are good for you — it’s part of the reason why many of us love being outside. At Hipcamp, we’re fans of #selfcare, so we curated a list of wellness experiences that will help you to #findyourselfoutside.
We’re huge believers in Forest Bathing — the Japanese practice of mindfully experiencing nature through your senses. Be it a walk through the woods, taking your shoes off at the park and really feeling the grass, or just spending any quiet time in nature — anyone can forest bathe! Additionally, we recommend literal forest bathing, because…it’s also awesome.
One of the best parts of yoga, is that you can practice it almost anywhere. Reach a higher level of connection by doing some stretches and deep breathing in nature, and let yourself take in the amazing sights, sounds, and smells around you! Stress, who?
