Into the Woods
The woods can be a scary place to a kid. It’s a world of its own—dense, wild, and filled with hidden things.
But once you’re an adult, (and stop reading fairy tales), you realize the woods can be a fascinating place. Walks through the woods make for special moments. A rare glimpse of wildlife, an unexpected patch of berries, or dramatic rays of sunlight pouring in on a wooded path can be breathtaking. Wildflowers can chase any leftover stress from a long day or week right out of your world.
But aside from its beauty, did you know the woods holds important benefits for human health?
Trees are not just great for stress release, but several studies have shown they help our immune systems in measurable and direct ways.
