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 hope you all had a great Saturday. Please take care of yourselves. Do not forget to stay focused on your goals, and let nobody and nothing take you away from them.
My strawberries are thriving. They love the weather in my neck of the woods and they rip fast, so I have tons of them every day. It’s so much fun! This year I fertilized them naturally with leaves from my banana trees and other sustainable methods I have; maybe that’s why they are so happy.
ONE OF MY STRAWBERRY PLANTS 😍
I have so many that now I have to figure out a way to feed the family with them so no strawberry goes to waste. Well, my hens eat them when for some reason they go bad. Usually, I eat them fresh right off the plant, in shakes, I make refreshing drinks, jam, popsicles, shortcakes, and even salads.
