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.
