Gardening my way to a clearer mind


Reaons why I am finding gardening good for my body and mind:

1. Tidying dead plants and natural mess – real Spring cleaning

2. Fresh air, and the fragrance of new flowers

3. Seeing the colours of new blooms – life wins!

4. Space to think – being reminded of life outside the everyday bubble

5. Encouraging growth after the Winter season

6. The sounds of birdsong instead of ringtones etc

7. Calming and theraputic – finding a natural rhythm

8. Manual work is good exercise – and eventually seeing the literal fruits of your labours

9. Getting some sunshine – feeling warmth in the bones, and seeing natural light

10. Controlling / working with your own bit of nature


So I suppose the mind is a bit like a garden. It needs some care and attention (and stronger sunlight) after a Winter period, and then it will bloom and blossom and be fruitful – it can come back to life even when you thought everything had died and faded away. There is always hope.
