The Good Stuff

  • Take a Little Time for Yourself: Let the Garden Help You! winter-pots-refined

    This is such a busy time of year: between decorating the house, baking, buying and wrapping gifts and visiting with friends and family, it seems there’s no time left for you!

    Why not let the garden help you to relax? “A garden is a place where we can slow down and reconnect with the natural world the way our ancestors did all day, every day,” says Kristen K. Brown, author of The Happy Hour Effect: 12 Secrets to Minimize Stress and Maximize Life. Research has shown that spending time in nature can help restore your attention, relax your body, and revive your mood.

    You can, of course, use gardens and gardening as a way to relax any time of year. I’m fond of heading into my garden and undertaking some complex task when I need to stop my brain from worrying about things over which I have little control. I’m equally fond of doing mindless weeding when I need to clear my brain and concentrate on a problem.

    Even in December, gardens can take the stress away. Go for a walk and admire the late fall beauty in one of our public gardens, or wander about in your own garden (or patio or balcony) and think about your successes this year and what you want to do next season. Grab a seed catalogue or gardening magazine and spend a quiet half hour with a cup of tea. Take a little bit of time for yourself in a garden, and I promise you, you’ll be refreshed and ready to handle whatever the season brings!
    Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and the best of the season to all our friends and customers.
