Much of the time when I go hiking it’s probably more accurately described as “forest bathing,” as pretentious as that sounds. I usually walk slowly, pay close attention to my environment, and stop often. I regularly sit under a tree to do my daily meditation. Learning to forage also encourages awareness: I’m always looking out for edible plants, most of which are easily missed on a quick and vigorous hike.
At any rate, this practice- whatever you want to call it- is a regular feature in my mental health toolkit. You should try it too! If you’re in the GR area and want to give it a shot, I know a handful of very relaxing and beautiful areas that are perfect for this.
