Green therapy

Life, Lifestyle

Hi there, it’s been awhile since I’ve written – a lot’s been happening! I’ve just moved flats to a beautiful new part of London with its own garden space. I’m not sure about you, but I didn’t realise how much of an impact green space has to wellbeing until I moved!

The outside entry ways to our old flat looked like this:

Big difference, huh?

Previous to moving, I’d say the happiness level leaving the house was probably a 6 out of 10 on a good day, especially as I stepped out on to the street. After moving, my general happiness is about a 9 out of 10 on most days! Seeing greenery, hearing birds, has made a significant difference.

Action of the week:

Try adding some greenery to your space and see how it works for you! If you don’t have garden space, find ways to incorporate some greenery, with plants in your house. An increased number of plants will also help oxygenate your home, so your air quality will improve.

If you think you will “kill” all of your plants, try making a terrarium. They require very little water, and are very low maintenance. I made some this weekend, while planting some into various pots. Took a little less than an hour to put together once having the materials. Enjoy your week!
