That’s right. Gardening saves lives. At least that is what I tell myself. Why? Because gardening calms, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, gets you and keeps you connected to Mother Earth. Don’t believe me? Ask the experts. It helps you practice acceptance, move beyond perfectionism, develop a growth mindset, connects you to your world, etc. Is there anything better than cultivating a tomato plant with your own two hands and watching it grow healthy, bright red, juicy tomatoes? (Notice I did not say vegetable. Tomato is actually a fruit. Nobody was more suprised than I was to learn that.) Or how about tenderly caring for a flower bed that will eventually emerge as a rose garden? There are few things as satisfying.
I totally believe in grounding. It works. And I can prove it! Well, it works for me at least. I have a few new grounding items that will make their way into the shop soon because yes, again, I am having them custom made.
That’s just what I do. Needs to be sustainable, fair-trade, organic, cruelty free, you know, that kind of stuff. These commitments are important for self, for our planet, and for basically everything and everyone existing!
So keep reminding yourself: Gardening Saves Lives.
You’re welcome! 🙂 and thank you.
