Self Care with Plants

The Corona virus is currently wreaking havoc and now and many of us might be stressed with worry about what is to come. It is important to manage our stress levels as that can lead to the breakdown of our health. Prioritizing self care is so crucial right now. I find that tending to and surrounding myself with plants is a great way for me to incorporate self care.

Studies show that interaction with indoor plants may reduce psychological and physiological stress by suppressing autonomic nervous system activity.

An indoor garden can offer a place of refuge and a place to unwind from the stressors of the outside world.  My indoor garden makes me happy and is a joyful place for me to get away to. Whether you live in a small apartment, or a large house, by introducing certain plants into your home, you will start to notice improvements to your health, and overall happiness. As well as enhancing your mood and creating a living space that is soothing to be in, surrounding yourself with plants is a great way to improve your self care. It's especially gratifying to tend to them and watch them grow and flourish.

I've rounded up 6 amazing floral wallpaper designs that recently caught my eye in today's post. The stunning one pictured above in that beautiful space is from Graham and Brown.

Cozy Up With A Book On Those Snowed In Days

Cozy Up With A Book On Those Snowed In Days- design addict mom

We are snow in the forecast here in the South and it's created quite a frenzy!  Most people are excitedly waiting in anticipation since it's been a few years since we've had snow. Schools are letting out early today, and I am sure there will be long lines in the supermarket as people make a mad dash to the aisles for those basic necessities like milk and bread. It's almost hilarious how crazy it gets around here in anticipation of snow. If it does snow, I would love to curl up with my favorite blanket and a good book, so today's post is all about the books. Books are a big deal around here, just check out these posts, HERE, and HERE.
