Ever wondered why so many people enjoy being outside, that is because it can have a huge positive effect on your mindset. There is something quite calming about stepping outside of your home and into your little sanctuary of outside space. Whether you choose to embrace it morning, noon or night, it definitely should be a place you frequent more. This is why we thought it was the ideal time to share five tips to help you make the most of it.
Give your garden some love
It’s all well and good prioritising spending time in the garden, but if it isn’t a nice place to be you may be put off. So it is a good idea to give your garden a little love. Perhaps get the lawn cut or work on the flower beds and plant some new flowers and shrubs. You could even consider purchasing some fertiliser like the one from Charlie Carp to help your plants and garden shrubs grow. Even just a quick tidy up can make a garden look loved and well cared for. Which will then inspire you to spend some more time in it.
Enjoy eating outside
Eating outside is a great way to socialise with friends and family, but it can also be a great way to enjoy your food in a relaxing way. Too often we can be guilty of eating our food too fast or not allowing our food to digest correctly. Taking an approach for a slower pace while eating outside will allow you to take more time with your food.
Use it as the perfect location for yoga or meditation
The garden is a wonderful place to practice yoga or meditation. The calming breeze is cooling, and the sounds of nature and wildlife all around you are relaxing. Many people choose to try yoga and meditation outside purely to help them relax their minds a little more, which ultimately helps them benefit from actually doing the yoga and meditation practices. Even exercising outside, if you prefer something with a little more cardio involved, provides the perfect opportunity and space.
Add a garden visit to your morning routine
One of the best times of day to relax and gather your thoughts for the day is first thing in the morning. That time where you are drinking that first coffee or tea, or even just enjoying some water with lemon. So why not take this moment outside. The fresh air will help to awaken your senses and allow you to feel more ready for the day ahead.
Make it a place the whole family can enjoy
Finally, a garden isn’t just about being used for one purpose, it should be a place the whole family can enjoy. This might mean creating storage so you can keep seating or even children’s toys tidy. Or maybe even creating certain zones in your garden designed for eating and relaxing. Making it a much more useable space.
I hope this has inspired you to get outside in your garden more often.
