Often times when we are stressed or anxious we are thinking about negative, past experiences/encounters or worrying about something that could happen in the future (aka watering our weeds). The long and the short of it is, we are not focusing our energy on the present moment, but rather choosing to focus on things that are out of our control.
While we can't change the past and we can't necessarily control the future... as gardeners, we CAN control the way we respond to our 'weeds'. We CAN choose to use healthy 'gardening tools' to help get us out of the 'weeds' and back to a calmer, more confident mindset.
Check out our list below of common 'weeds' gardeners of all ages can experience on a daily basis and some helpful 'gardening tools' to use to help get us get back to watering our flowers...and not our weeds.
Weeds -----> Gardening Tools
Scared -----> Count Your Flowers (Gratitude)
Sad -----> Journaling
Mad -----> Exercise
Nervous -----> Flower Breathing (Deep Breathing)
Embarrassed -----> Read a Book
Lonely -----> Do a Puzzle or Craft
Hey gardeners...what are some of your favorite 'gardening tools' to us to help you when you feel stressed?
