Today’s world is more connected than ever. This results in a feeling of continuously being “on” for both business, friends, and family. The moments of rest are becoming smaller, and the number of burnouts is increasing. We start to lose touch with our bodies and environment in this fast-paced world. Luckily, there are numerous options you can consider to touch base with yourself and your environment. Garden plants, surprisingly, can be an important part of it.
Gardening can help you to reduce stress levels and connect you with nature. During this time offline, you can recharge and enjoy the little things. Besides that, it is fulfilling to create and maintain something regularly. This is also the reason why toys such as Lego provide fulfillment to both children and adults.
Call it a work-out for the brain and the body: a regular garden maintenance timeslot. When you frequently work in the garden you will feel both healthier and happier in your other daily activities. It helps to create a recurring event in your calendar that makes you aware of this activity. For example, schedule it on a Saturday morning, or select an evening during the weekday to clear your mind after a long day of work.
Gardening can become a true family activity. Working in the garden together is both a fun activity as well as a learning experience for children. They will see how plants grow and can how to take care of them. This can also be expanded by growing vegetables and fruits in the garden. This shows kids how these are grown and also lets them enjoy and appreciate nature more.
Plants belong not only in the garden but also inside our homes. Many plants can be placed in the home and thrive. This helps to both decorate your home as well as create a healthy environment to live in. Plants help to clean the air, resulting in a better space to breathe for you and your family
Different types of plants require different types of attention. Some plants require you to treat them daily, whereas others only need to have water on a bi-weekly basis. It makes sense to select plants based on the time you have and want to spend on taking care of them. There are also intuitive applications available that you can use to take care of the plants. For example, you can indicate the type of plant and when you purchased it. Next, the application will indicate when you need to water them, as well as change the soil from time to time. This reduces the hassle of caretaking, especially for less experienced caretakers.
