Gardening, whether you’re growing food, flowers, herbs, trees, or anything else, there is something soothing to the soul about playing in the dirt. growing your own garden is a unique way to give your body an extra dose of self care that works differently than most other self care modalities.

When your usual self care routine is no longer working, my number one recommendation is to get out in nature. For many people, that is a lot easier said than done… but growing your own garden (whether outside or inside) helps bring you closer to nature when getting out in the woods or onto the beach isn’t ideal.
