Gardening for Stress Relief by Ralf Papenberg

“Tap Into Your Spiritual Side by Using Gardening to Alleviate Stress”
Available in eBook

by Ralf Papenberg

A guide to setting up your garden for stress relief!

Gardening is going to help you from head to toe, inside out – and it won’t just be a benefit to you personally, but to your loved ones as well.

Your spiritual nature is as important as your physical and mental state in your overall well-being. Whether or not you belong to an organized religion or belief system, you can find spiritual satisfaction in gardening by relieving stress and allowing your mind to focus on something besides life’s many problems.

Digging in the soil has the same effect on your mind as athletic activity. It’s now viewed by medical science as a way to get mental and spiritual therapy for those who are depressed.

Verdant foliage, flowers, water, wildlife and smells all add to the harmonious nature of a garden and can have many healing effects when you’re exposed. Gardening has long been recommended to those recovering from surgery to gain optimism and hope to nurture your life and your spiritual side.

The miracle of growing living things provides us with a sense that life goes on no matter what else may be happening. We sometimes forget that in a world where we live by someone else’s schedules and wants and needs.
