NYTimes Magazine travelogue photos (Shinrin-yoku, and take a breath)

from NYTimes

Is this goofing off, or is this about personal resilience? Like the idea of “forest bathing” (youtube) or shinrin-yoku, I seek out opportunities during the day to pause and reflect, and walk where there are trees. Sometimes this ends up being an online article with lots of nature photos 😦 .

Hey, you do what you can.

The photos from this travelogue are pretty amazing.

And, did any of you watch the movie “Crazy Rich Asians”? The skyscraper-top boat-like structure in Singapore is apparently an Infinity Pool and is REAL (see the background in the photo at the top). Gotta put this on my bucket list.

CMIO’s take? Harken back to the tripartite model of physician burnout and resilience: a) develop a culture of wellness, b) work on improving practice efficiency and c) work on personal resilience. And ‘forest bathing’ belongs firmly on this list. Take a moment.
