How to Prepare

On the day it is important to come prepared so that you have a comfortable and relaxing experience. Learn about what to bring.

  1. Check the weather: We advise to know the weather before you attend, check the day before and the morning of your forest therapy experience.

  2. Comfortable clothing: Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely and that are appropriate for the weather conditions.

  3. Comfortable footwear: Choose comfortable, closed-toe shoes (no thongs) that provide good support and traction, especially since most Forest Therapy trails do involve some uneven terrain. If wet conditions then sturdy boots are recommended to avoid wet toes!

  4. Something to sit on: A few of our activities involve sitting in nature so we recommend a small picnic rug, a small portable stool or an outdoor waterproof padded mat. You can also use the back of a waterproof jacket to sit on.

  5. Water: Bring a full water bottle to keep you hydrated and energized during the walk.

  6. Insect repellent: If you are visiting a forested area with insects, bring some insect repellent to avoid bites and stings.

  7. Sun protection: If the walk will be in a sunny area, bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun.

  8. Backpack or bag: Bring a backpack or bag to carry your personal items, including water, extra clothes and any medication you might need.

  9. Mobile phone: Bring your mobile phone for emergency purposes only, but please turn this off during the walk to fully immerse yourself in the forest therapy experience.

  10. Bring an open-mind: For your best experiene it is best to leave distractions behind and approach this experience with an open mind and a willingness to connect with nature. Be receptive to the experience and trust the process.

  11. Follow the guide: During the walk, follow the guide's instruction and lead. They will have a range of activities they will guide you through. Don't be afraid to ask questions or share your experiences with the group.

This is your call to slow down
and connect with nature
