Parks and green spaces have a positive impact on our moods and our productivity. I doubt you need to read the studies that prove it. Anyone who takes walks on their lunch breaks or enjoys the walks by the river can attest to relaxation and better focus when they return.
Any green space will do. Your balcony or window box filled with herbs or flowers, your spider plant sitting in the living room shelf. Even a poster can help. But there is something to be said about being able to be surrounded by garden. Houzz asked what the number one thing people wanted to do in their backyard and The most common answer was to simply be present and watch the grass grow.
There is something wonderful about the simple act of being present in the moment in a space that brings you pleasure.
If you are like me and are working from your home, I ask you to get out there tomorrow, or tonight as the sunsets, and appreciate the birds, the smells, the quiet. Maybe like my neighbors light a fire and chat quietly into the night. There really is no better place to be than in a space that makes you feel at ease.
