But let’s not focus on those sad, dreadful worlds-suburban prune spaces that is. Let’s focus on the wilderness, the forests that seem to be lessening and the spaces that humans make that are controlled yet allowed to breath. We all know plants require water and gas from the soil. So let us not compact the land. Define art…fine. Art starts with a space…be it earth, cotton canvas, the airwaves to be filled with music. Art is an open empty space even if it is filled, because a human takes the time to fill that empty space or to not fill it or to cut away from it as in sculpture. But simply speaking, an act becomes artist when delight is considered. Spending time in nature, feeling the freshness and liveliness of the surroundings will always bring happiness and satisfaction in everyone’s daily life. It will help in both mental as well as physical well being. In a Japanese study, viewing plants altered EEG recordings and reduced stress, fear, anger, and sadness, as well as reducing blood pressure, pulse rate and muscle tension. Regular moderate-intensity exercise may reduce the risk of dementia, mental health problems, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer of the breast and colon, and in an Australian study, gardening was found to be more effective than walking, education or maintaining alcohol intake at moderate levels in protecting against dementia. It enhances self-esteem and alters the EEG.
Trees, hedges, and other plants counter climate change by trapping carbon and emitting oxygen; and worldwide, forests may offset a quarter of man-made carbon dioxide. They also improve the environment by reducing noise, heat, glare, wind, water run-off, erosion and dust. We should place plants at windows, balconies, staff room, offices, atria, communal areas, surgeries, and even indoors and let patients have a peace satisfying view which will help to keep them happy and healthy. These few new practices if we incorporate in our daily life, our mental and physically healthy will surely improve. This is an ancient practice our grandparents used to practice, how their immunity was so strong. According to my previous experience and as a personal recommendation, you should always start with a plant that does not need much water and is relatively easy to care for. Once you have acquired that experience and practice in knowing / identifying the needs of a plant, you can keep adding different types of beautiful and amazing plants to your garden. I have seen many people who have just started growing their plants, but at some point they give up and that eventually makes the plant die. Plant parenting is not easy. Plants need the same kind of love, attention and care, unlike us human. A good place for your plant: It is important that you choose the right place for your plant where they can get proper and required sunlight as per their requirement. Avoid moving your plant too frequent they might not like it.
