Find Your Calm

Our website features the best ideas and concepts from across the planet. Join us to explore fascinating forests and beautiful nature connection activities. See what nature can do for you, and those who matter to you.

Countries around the world are uncovering scientific proof about the healing effects of connecting with nature. Japan and South Korea have even created the charming practice of forest bathing or healing nature walks. With our overloaded minds, overworked bodies, and overwhelmed souls, returning to nature can yield surprising results. Here’s our 5 minute film that explains how.

Just like the forest, this site has many treasures waiting to be found. Inspiring articles, films, and stories filled with new insights. The more you explore, the more you discover. Once a month subscribers of our free newsletter receive fresh ideas in their inbox from our forest blog.

“Our aim is simple. Helping people heal. Helping forests heal.”

For thousands of years our ancestors hunted, gathered, and survived in the wilderness. Endless grasslands, dense forests and vast stretches of green were an integral part of a place we called home.

But in today’s world, the green spaces are replaced by urban structures, crowded places and polluted environments. This rapid change puts an unwanted pressure on our body and mind. As a result we have seen that chronic illnesses, stress, depression, anxiety, burnout and other ailments are on the rise. Also as a society, there is an increase in apathy, anger, addictions, intolerance, and loneliness.

So how do we transform our connection with nature in a way that transforms us? How can we start the process of creating a kinder, calmer, and a healthier world?

It provides an easy and effective way for avoiding stress, anxiety, burnout, depression, as well as reducing their ill-effects. Connecting with nature boosts our body’s immunity, energy levels, and healing ability. It can improve our mood, sleep, memory as well as focus.

  1. Thank you for your beautiful movie. I am so glad that, on one point in my life, there were dogs. Everyday we have a walk in the forest. And as a yogateacher and coach I take my clients very often into the woods. Because I already noticed the healing powers of nature. And I want to share this. Like you did in this beautiful way with the movie. Now I feel supported too. I will share this movie and do my best of spreading the word. Go on and I meet you here on this website again. 🙂


  2. Often on the weekends when I’m feeling tired from work and a tad disillusioned with life, I get in my car and drive out to the trees. I’m fortunate to live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria Australia and we live fairly close to farmlands. There are avenues of gums, pines and many others and as soon as I see them, a wave of calmness & reassurance washes over me and I become excited about life again. They are my protectors and comforters. Recently when I was only working a few days a week, a friend and I would go walking each morning with the sole purpose of looking for something in nature that was awesome. Whether it was a gnarled old tree, a beautiful bird, a dried out leaf, an alpaca in her woolie pjamas or a interestingly coloured rock or a dragon shaped cloud in the sky. It was so easy to find something to show each other and to be amazed by. We called our walks ‘ Looking for Awe’ and I wish I had the time to take everyone out to the fields or farms and encourage everyone to just look and experience that simple pleasure one can get everywhere from nature around us. It somehow puts everything into perspective and helps me realise that life is good.

    • I can relate to what you are saying, I often take my shoes off and walk slowly and mindfully, looking at the trees feeling the buzz of the bush on my bare feet, I always come away refreshed.
