Hello gardeners! Breathing exercises have been found to be effective in reducing stress and anxiety levels among gardeners of all ages which is why they are one of our favorite go-to 'gardening tools'. The exercises can be practiced anywhere, anytime, with little to no materials. Today, Gardener Kelsey has designed a Flower Breathing Tracer Meditation Activity for gardeners to use at home or in school. This simple, yet powerful exercise can help you unwind, flourish and nurture your gardens.
All you have to do is trace the petals with your finger and follow the breathing prompts. As you inhale deeply, imagine that you are taking in the beauty and tranquility of your garden.
Hold your breath for a few seconds, and then exhale slowly as you imagine that you are releasing any weeds, or concerns that you may have.
