May 3rd, 2019 is Garden Meditation Day. What does that mean and how can you celebrate? Conscious Life Shop points out that “being in nature reduces anxiety.” Meaning, while we are among nature, we feel a sense of ease, as we are grounded with Mother Nature. Not to mention, fresh air can do wonders for you! John Mini Distinctive Landscapes encourages you to participate in National Garden Meditation Day. You’ll feel like a new person!
Before we dive into how to utilize this “holiday,” let’s talk about how you can transform your garden into a relaxing, outdoor meditation-driven area!
The first thing you can do is add a stone pathway to or through your garden, along with a seating area. Gardens are nice to look at, but even nicer if you can sit and enjoy the beauty around you.
Second, add a water feature such as a fountain or a birdbath! The sound of water paired with birds singing and the natural sounds around you makes your garden a soothing and calming area.
Lastly, add plants! What is a garden without plants? When deciding which plants you want to add, think about complementing colors in the flowers against the greens as well as the certain scents you’ll get from particular flowers and plants. For example, planting some lavender will relax you by just looking at it let alone smelling it!
Once you have transformed your garden, you’ll be ready for National Garden Meditation Day. You can participate by taking care of the plants in your own space, sitting in your new seating area while taking in the sounds of nature, or adding some activity like Yoga.
