How connecting with nature through Forest bathing can improve human health and wellbeing.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kirsten McEwan, Associate Professor of Health and Well-being at the University of Derby, United Kingdom. She is happiest spending time in nature and was pleased to be able to bring together her passion for the outdoors and health and wellbeing research by becoming a Forest Bathing researcher and practitioner. Most of her current research focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of Forest Bathing and making it accessible to wider audiences.
Forest bathing is a slow mindful nature experience which has been implemented as a preventative public health intervention in Japan. I will describe my research evaluating the effectiveness of Forest bathing in Western adults, adolescents, and adults with mobility impairment and chronic fatigue. I will also share research revealing some of the mechanisms behind how Forest bathing can improve health and wellbeing.
All participants are asked to bring a small natural object (a fallen leaf, pinecone, feather, stone, shell, small piece of wood etc.) with them to the lecture.
