I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Here in Oregon, nature truly is our sanctuary. Not only do we head to the Great Outdoors to break a sweat or satisfy our insatiable wanderlust; we also turn to Mother Nature when we’re in need of rest and rejuvenation from the inside out. For this kind of soul-feeding therapy, forest bathing at Westfir Lodge in Oregon really is the ultimate relaxing experience. Forest bathing—don’t worry, it’s not how it sounds—is an ancient Japanese practice that combines a walk in nature with meditation and mindfulness. It’s an immersive outdoor experience that really puts you in the here and now, where you can lose yourself in the splendor of nature. At Westfir Lodge, you can enjoy a truly transformative, relaxing retreat in the woods.
Mother Nature really is the best medicine, and forest bathing at Westfir Lodge in Oregon is a truly transformative therapy that will leave you relaxed, recharged, and ready to tackle life. And really, that’s something we could all use.
