Meet the Forest

My number one favourite thing to do is simply walking in the forest. Forests have such a peaceful and calm atmosphere that it is impossible to come out from a forest with a frown – a smile is always guaranteed! A forest is a good listener when you are sad or stressed and will also dance with you when you are so happy that you just can't hide it. Spend a little time in the fresh air, watch the blue sky and feel the presence of the peaceful old trees around you, maybe even see some wild animal – this is the forest.
