Do it for the sake of your mental health, and practice constant awareness and effort over time.
Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), and their texture (touch).
Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus on our way of living.
Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs, and plants can play an essential role in taking the stress away from your life.
1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety
Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location, you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, but it’s also proven to promote a better night’s sleep
If you surround yourself with jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.
Sleep plays a vital role in our physical and mental well-being. If you lack sleep, you may have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems, and coping with change.
2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air
It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room, or bedroom to promote a calming ambiance and fight anxiety.
Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colorful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes but having brightly colored plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.
3. ROSES — Take a rose bath
4. Eat edible Flowers — Add them to your salad.
I chose today to talk about “mental sanity” because lately, I have seen patients with many distress symptoms. They come to me complaining of headaches, left arm pain, extreme fatigue, hyperventilation, etc. After talking to them, exploring them, and auscultating them, their blood pressure is way high, and their EKG shows signs of severe anxiety.
So, be careful and control your stress and emotions because they could affect your heart. Remember: it is better to prevent than sorry,
Here is ONE IDEA AT A TIME: Get yourself a nice-calm hobby. Like gardening, carpentry, reading, painting, walking around your neighborhood, listening to music, or learning how to play an instrument (this one is so much fun). If you prefer an exciting hobby like speed cycling, consult your doctor before starting any exhausting exercising.
Dedicate yourself to this hobby with all your heart making sure that you really like what you chose to do. This kind of approach to lower your anxiety levels truly works.
I hope I have helped you with this advice.

Forget about the frantic life and live day by day.
If you are affected by the insane excitement that work puts us through, slow down that frantic pace of life in the city and enjoy the relaxing-vibrant life in nature.
We can do it in the backyard of our homes, bicycling in the forest or along the ocean, or we can travel to a wonderfully calming place in this beautiful world of ours!
Keep always in mind that we decide how to think and respond to the events in our lives. Most people respond to how the events make them feel. But there is another way to live, a way that will foster peace from the depths of our souls.
What do you do to find calm, peace, and joy in your life, away from the hectic life in the city?
Life is changing dramatically in front of us all, and around the world. Life always changes, it’s true, but right now the changes are daily, and aggressive, some are so painful for many, like the loss of life due to Covid-19 and horrible wars going on like the one in Ukraine.
How to cope with this terrible suffering that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people are going through right now worldwide? Sometimes it can get terrifying for many when thinking about the future. and usually, these patients develop several mental issues, like panic attacks, severe anxiety, anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, that can make them manifest physical symptoms or aggravate the ones they already have.
SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SUICIDE DEATH
Suicide can be preventable from infancy. Having caring parents and relatives who really love their children and look out for them, creating an optimal and loving environment for their healthy and happy growth.
When a friend, a child, a patient, anybody tells us that “I don’t want to live anymore”, or that “I am going to kill myself tonight or tomorrow”, we have the responsibility as human beings to believe him/her and help in any way possible and as soon as possible.
However, this almost seems like a difficult dream in the world we live in. But it is not impossible, we have to have hope, always, and have love, for ourselves, our children, our family, and friends.
