As a mom who runs her own business, I’m the first to admit that I don’t get a whole lot of time to myself. Between work and taking care of my kids, most of my time is spent taking care of everything and everyone but myself.

That all changed a few days ago. I had a big day of "me time" ahead of me, so the night before, I took Nature Made Good Sleep gummies. Because they have ingredients that help you fall asleep and rest well—like L-theanine and melatonin—I got the best night’s sleep ever. Once I felt calm and refreshed, I was so excited to spend the day forest bathing in the beautiful, idyllic Marin Headlands.

I have to admit it was a little nerve-wracking at first. I’d heard all about forest bathing's endless benefits, from a better immune system to an improved sense of happiness and well-being. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little worried that forest bathing wouldn't work as well on me as it had on other people.

Want to find out how it all went for me? Watch the video above. I’m going to guess you’ll want to book your own date with nature sooner rather than later.
