Franciscan Spirituality Center suggests ‘forest bathing’ to  ease COVID-19 stress

All Hixon and Forest Hills trails closed until further notice

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – An option to relieve stress if you’re feeling cooped up during Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers’ Safer-at-Home” order is forest bathing, although it isn’t remotely connected to what a bear does in the woods.

In fact, the only thing you might bare in the woods would be your soul, according to the spiritual endeavor of forest bathing, a Japanese practice also called or shinrin-yoku.
