I’m learning that self-care can be found in the mostly unlikely places…
I’ve always loved plants and have tried and failed to keep many different varieties alive and flourishing. Most recently I have really picked up on my love for houseplants. I’ve added to my collections and I’m on the verge of turning my living room into an urban jungle.
But it’s not just about the beautiful esthetic that plants tend to carry with them. They are like a form of therapy. Taking care of them and nurturing them is a daily ritual that I genuinely enjoy. It’s an amazing form of self-care! I know that sounds kinda crazy since I have to actually take care of plants, but it’s not. It’s amazing and I feel like I am in my element. My plants literally brighten my mood throughout the day. Plus house plants have so many benefits.
I am no expert on the care of houseplants and I am learning more everyday. I have created an Instagram account to document my plants and at some point I would like to start selling some of the DIY plant accessories my husband and I have been making. Check out @rootsandfoliage when you get a chance.
