Sorry, I Have Plants This Weekend ☀️🌿 3 Easy Self-Care Tips to Do Outdoors

June 18, 2020

Don't Forget To Refill Your Well

Here at Proven Winners Direct, we feel it is very important to remember to take care of yourself, especially when you are stressed. Allow yourself to relax. It's okay. Go outside and just breathe. Sit down at your patio table in your garden. Look at nature. Be present and rest.

There are a number of ways to recharge. We list a few below and you don't need any yoga equipment to do it.

Spend Time Outside With Your Pets

Whether you throw a frisbee, walk, or lounge around, spending time with your furry best friend is a low cost way to de-stress. Studies have shown that time spent with cats and dogs alleviates stress. Spending that time together outside gives the added bonus of fresh air, sunshine, and being around plants and flowers which also helps to alleviate stress. Grab your furry BFF and get yourselves outside!🐕 🚶‍♀️

Share Your Love of Gardening and the Outdoors

What's better than spending time with your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews? Spending that time together outside! There is so much to explore and discover in your garden. Studies have shown that helping others helps you feel better. Try to include them when you need to pick berries, water your plants, or deadhead old blooms and teach them a little of what you know. You may be surprised at the health benefits of gardening, and find a gardener in the making! 👩🏻‍🌾👨🏽‍🌾

Talk to a Dear Friend

Sitting down with a dear friend and simply talking can have numerous health benefits.They can help us gain some perspective on an issue or make us laugh. Both bring down cortisol levels that make us feel stressed. Take the conversation outside (socially distanced, of course) to enjoy your outdoor space and each other's company. Maybe give them a garden tour, too. 🌷🌷


Stay well and happy gardening! 👒 🌿
