Hong Kong is one of the most stressed cities in the world. Under constant societal changes and the prolonged pandemic, many Hongkongers suffer from physical and mental exhaustion. Happiness levels might have repeatedly hit new lows, but there are simple ways to help us find joy in our everyday life.
Science has proved that spending just 20 minutes in nature leads to a drop in stress hormones, with the effect lasting for 2-3 weeks. Indeed, doctors around the world are now prescribing “nature pills” for patients to improve their health. Nature is a free remedy for stress and anxiety, and given that 75% of our land is countryside, we are blessed with abundant resources that could be leveraged to improve well-being.
Nature Bathing was founded back in 2017 as a social enterprise, with the mission to connect people and nature to uplift well-being. We utilize a nature-based approach supported by scientific evidence, integrating Nature Healing, Nature Play, Multi-sensory experience and Nature Art to improve physical and mental well-being. Our team works with listed companies, government departments, shopping malls, nonprofits and more than 300 schools to design and organize innovative nature-themed programs.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get in touch with nature. Therefore, we actively look for resources and partners so as to subsidize underprivileged groups to participate in nature programs.
Our dynamic and vibrant team works together with dedication to help Hongkongers de-stress and find happiness. We are currently expanding our team, and welcome you who dare to innovate, love nature and care about the community to join our work and be part of the movement!
