All too often, we’re consumed by our worries and anxieties. We have a thousand thoughts racing through our minds at any given moment. Never-ending to-do lists lament over not having enough time to complete them, anxieties about what the future will hold… the list goes on. We sometimes believe wrongly that progress on one front alone determines our worth, and if we’re not achieving the kind of success we’ve chalked out against a deadline, we’re not doing well in life at all.
On such occasions, it helps to have a passion project that gives us a sense of accomplishment, fulfillment, and purpose. Simple Plants have been known to bring happiness, equanimity, and a sense of stillness to our lives. Intuitively, we enjoy spending time outdoors surrounded by greenery. It makes us feel at ease, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
In these times, when we’re stuck indoors, we have an opportunity to build ourselves a small patch of green, a haven, our very own miniature retreat. All it takes is nurturing a few simple plants at your home which also goes well with your home interior.
Allow us to recommend candidates for your sanctuary:
