The Wellbeing Benefits Of Your Garden
With the third lockdown taking it’s toll on all of us, whatever your age, the garden brings even more benefits than ever to our wellbeing.
Being stuck indoors has been hard, especially over the winter months. But with Spring starting to arrive, what better time to venture back out in your garden. With plenty of gardening jobs to do this time of Year I have started pottering…..tidying up my patio, moving my pots around, cutting back the plants that didn’t survive the winter and I even mowed the lawn.
It’s only day one and I already feel a sense of achievement to get my garden back ready for Spring. I have thrown away the cracked accessories that look a little sad and will treat myself to some new ones.
I forget just how lovely it is to be outdoors enjoying the first Spring sunshine and I take the opportunity to enjoy my cup of tea and slice of cake outside sitting on my patio in the warm sunshine. Taking in mindful moments of the little things we need to be thankful for. Today I am thankful for the lovely warm sunshine.
As I look around my garden I am thankful for the birds that visit. The singing robin that sits in my holly tree, that is always there. Robins often remind us of those loved ones we have lost, and I so enjoy talking to my visiting robins any time. I am thankful for the new Spring flowers that are just appearing – my snowdrops make me smile and the little daffodils look cute in a pot outside my back door.
Trending This Season
This Year we will again spend more time than ever in our gardens. Extending our home into the garden is very trending this season. With big seating areas and lots of accessories, lights, lanterns, cushions and rugs making it cosy and inviting. Not sure about the outdoor rugs if it rains, but I love the thought of relaxing here any time night or day.
Garden lights are also very popular enhancing our planting areas - they look great under grasses and bamboos too. Also creating a calming area to soften the mood for you to enjoy your summer nights in the garden, relaxing and taking some self care.
From a small calming tea light holder to fairy lights and lanterns
covering your trees and fences. You can't ever have enough garden lights.
My top tip is to definately make getting back into your garden top of the list - as soon as that Spring sunshine returns.
We are all going to have such well deserved fun in our garden this year with hopefully no restrictions and be back reunited with our loved ones in the best place - our gardens.
