Forest Bathing in India
Dipika Sharma is a Forest Bathing Guide in Delhi, Born and brought up in Assam and Darjeeling amidst nature. Her life consists of gathering a lot of memories from Forest Walks and Treks in the hills. Her love for nature led her to Forest bathing and she spent weekends Bird watching in Sanctuaries near Delhi Ncr. In 2019 August she traveled to Ireland and trained to be Forest Bathing Guide with The European Forest Therapy Institute. Dipika is now leading the forest bathing walks in India.
There are no defined rules for forest-bathing. All you need to do is to involve yourself in a forest, walking or sitting, or both for an hour. The pace should be slow; there should be no objectives — no bird-watching with binoculars or trekking to a lookout point.
While talking to Platocast, Dipika also mentioned that it is high time for us to give it back to nature and take care of it. She feels that we all should take a little break from our daily life and take a digital detox to feel rejuvenated and get back our energy and mind on track.
