Using Your Hobby Grow To De-Stress — The Psychological Benefit of Time With Plants

Time in nature is good for our mental health.

And research backs this up; time with plants helps improve our mood, reduce stress, and relieve anxiety.

Now, imagine being able to dip into that stress-release at any point in the day.

As someone who works almost entirely remote, I have access to my grow all day. I can peek in on the ladies and see how they’re doing, give myself a mindless task for a few minutes between meetings, or even just open up a tent and sit there and stare.

You see, not everyone has access (or time) to go take a hike or spend time on a mountain when they work all day.

And, even if you work in an office, a Hobby Grow allows you to spend a few moments before or after work in nature, every day.

Bonus: It’s also good for your plants, and a good growing habit, to check on them once a day anyways.

Don’t just spend time doing what needs to be done.

Intentionally carve out 5 minutes for doing nothing but being in the grow, with the plants, focused on the present.

Often, we spend all our time in the grow working on the grow.
