Bring The Zen To Your Garden As Well As Your Mind
Everyone wants to have a clear, peaceful mind, free of stress and worry. – There’s far too many beautiful things in life to waste time focusing on the bad. One way to practise this is by having a clear space to reside in that’s attractive, calming, and free of clutter and mess. As winter is passing us by, the weather will start getting warm again, meaning we can sit out in our gardens and bask in the sun. But you aren’t going to want to do this if your garden isn’t a nice place to be. So now is the time to give it a zen-inspired makeover.
Here’s what you need to do.
A place to breathe.
Everyone deserves their own little hideout where they can reflect on their day, take a breather, and dream about the future. Now, this can be created very easily, whether it be adding a nice lounger under your tree, or building a wooden shelter to hide under. But you can take it one step further by focusing on the small details. The more creative you are, the better, because you can really set the scene by making your own lights so that you can sit in your garden in the evening and have a warm atmosphere around you. You may decide to weave some fairy lights around any furniture you have. Or you can stick some candles into mason jars and decorate them with paint and glitter (if you don’t mind getting a little messy). Or you could even hang some lanterns off the branches of your tree to give it that bohemian vibe.
A place to float.
We all know that swimming is a great way to keep fit. But it’s also a wonderful way to free the mind and relieve it from stress, so why not consider getting yourself some custom pool builders to design your very own unique pool to fit right into the space you have available. It doesn’t need to be huge; it can be whatever you make it. Some people get put off by the idea of having a pool because they think it requires too much looking after, but as long as you keep it clean and maintain it, then there’s no reason you should have any difficulty, so don’t let that put you off. Just imagine waking up and going for a swim before breakfast. Or getting home after a long days work, and diving into your own private sanctuary…
Now you have some general ideas, put them to use, and get thinking of other ways you can turn your garden into a safe haven. Flowers are another beautiful way of adding a little colour and visual stimulation to your garden while making it smell wonderful, as well as inviting wildlife to come and stop for a quick hello, before continuing on with their journey.
Then when summer arrives, you can invite your favourite people round, have some drinks, and share stories until the sun disappears and the moon invites a distant light to you all.
