In Japan there is a practice called shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing.” Forest bathing entails a short visit to a nearby forest for health reasons, and has been found to significantly lower stress hormones and even lower blood glucose levels for some people with diabetes. If you’re feeling stressed or worried, turn off your computer and get outside into a forest or garden…. BUT WAIT! Finish my article first!
Japanese brand Sassafras clearly understands the importance of getting outside, focusing on durable clothes for gardening and other outdoor activities. Their Weeds Digger Western Shirt is well suited to life in the garden or forest, made from a strong navy 100% cotton ripstop fabric and resembles a classic sawtooth Western shirt. With its heritage-style details: classic yokes, snap buttons, it brings a Western edge to your forest bathing.
And while we can all agree that nature is great, it’s much harder to online shop there, so check out Sassafras before you go.
