Try turning off the television. It may not be as good as forest bathing but it will help. I realize this is an extreme solution, so you may have to ease off a little at a time. I won't go so far as suggesting not getting on the internet, though. That would be really drastic, perhaps even fatal. That is, if you aren't on the internet, you don't exist.

I say that and don't actually watch television either but my wife sure does. She even leaves the television on when she's outside. Half of the programs are British, which are carried exclusively by a local station. Some are interesting but I can never quite understand the dialogue.

My wife and I have separate TVs, with headphones, so we have our own remotes and don't have to fight over what channel to watch.   However, i tend to watch mostly at night also.

Kinda like not reading a book together, Bob?

Haven't had a TV in decades. Had netflixs for a while. Do youtube. If I have a TV, I tend to sit and watch it.

We read the Sunday funnies together out loud. We change our voices taking on the different characters. That's fun together. Funny papers aren't always so funny anymore. Just something else to do naked. It is good to be foolish together.

We do books and mags, take classes, do a couple of groups, dance, make music, etc.. Better to interact, no matter what the activity. Better to use the body. Most TV melts down a mind eventually. All the TV news is so ridiculously biased, or just flat out government and corporate propaganda these days, it isn't worth watching the news except to get a better idea what the dullards are being taught to think. It is mostly Trump doing something outrageous, so as to make it seem normal so see the world as a hostile circus act, the true issues are glossed over, anyway. Now, another year about a horse race with no substance, totally ignoring the issues.

A naked walk in the woods is certainly more relevant and healthy. Even being one of those people who spend their time getting a perfect tan is more relevant than TV. Eating healthy food of all kinds is also a good substitute. REal living instead of watching a box tell you about things that you can't do anything about, just to sell you on something that you don't need.

I periodically watch TV over at my relative's homes. Each year, I sit down and see how much more outrageous it has become.

2 people reading a book would be difficult.

My wife is an English professor.  She reads mostly literature and fiction books.  She watches movies and other fiction on TV. 

I have very limited use for fiction in print or video.  I tend to watch sports, documentaries, reality, TV about real men doing real work and achieving real goals.

I ignore TV FAKE news.  Its all hate and propaganda.  Sometimes I check local news for the weather forecast.   There is much more accurate news info on Twitter than on corporate crap media.  For example, we learned today that the "Russian operative" who the Trump Campaign was accused of meeting by the Mueller investigation was actually a Ukrainian employee of Obama's State Department.  He was presenting a proposal for settling the ongoing Crimean conflict.  His meeting with Presidnet Elect Trump's staff was part of his work for the US State Department (and Mueller).   Mueller left all of that out of his "Investigation" report and used the meeting to allege that Trump had secret meetings with Russians.  None of that will ever be learned watching TV FAKE news.

We are talking about moving to Arizona where evening walks would be more reasonable for more of the year.  We are again having cold and windy.  Brrrrr.   My wife has not been willing to share naked walks for years.  Sad.

Under the full moon light. Just incredible. DF and I have a ritual when we're our under a full moon. We dance and try to sing "Dancing in the Moonlight." Always naked, if possible.

Naked desert walks and hikes are wonderful, like walking around inside a huge black and white TV. In the heat of summer, it is always wonderful to walk in the balmy evening after sundown. YOur convertible Mustang would be perfect for that. An old girlfriend had one. We'd just cruise. I got to drive.

So it's called 'Forest Bathing' is it?!
That's what I do.  And far less frequently than I'd like.
But given these apparent benefits, I ought to make more effort.

Yes, and report on the experience. Is the sun out in your woods yet?

its bxxxxy chilly and persisting down with rain in somerset .   forecast is pretty much the same all week.   might have to do some weeding in the poly tunnel later... after ive drained the stuff thats outside in pots. ive got a load of shrub cuttings in pots, the pots are stood in plastic boxes to make watering quick and easy... chuck an inch of water in every couple of days and they suck up what they want, yesterday some of the pots were floating.  gueass the easy answere would be to drill some overflow holes in the sides of the plastic boxes.   ive forgotten what the thread title was, am i rambling again

It was about sunscreen, but that is a distinctly superfluous commodity in the UK at the moment, so itís only fair the topic drifts to non-sunscreen matters. I will be glad when we have cause to drag ourselves back on topic.

Suns been out, we broke 100F for the first time yesterday, which was unusual, it's late. There are gambling pools about the time and date that we break that record. Kinda like when the ice breaks and flows in the spring.

Everything has dried up. Now, we wait for the monsoon rains.

Where you live, a warm poly tunnel would be a necessity for me, or I'd surely die....

Hey, you Brits had your summer, a few weeks ago. Don't be greedy.

No it very much is not!  We have had an unusually long run of rotten weather (rain, floods in parts, cold, grey etc.) for June.  Also I have had lots to do - sitting on trains a lot - and a knee injury (fell off a chair).  So the woods have been a distant memory lately.  Hopefully things will perk up next week and I will have time for a walk up there.  If so, and when, a report will be forthcoming.

this uk summer is nowt unusual,   anyone in the uk will be aware of the pilton/glastonbury pop festival,it gets pleanty of news coverage on tv and in the papers , its held about 10 miles from us,  theyre either treating the masses for heat stroke or showing pics of them wading through knee deep mud.

wimbledon tennis is another good example , pleanty of media coverage ,years ago  ive even seen a photo of ducks on a puddle on one of the courts .... there was some speculation that a press photographer had actually smuggled them in .

ive also heard it argued that watching raindrops falling on a covered cricket test match wicket is marginally more interesting than the play itself. :)
