Ithink we could all use a little more peace and quiet in our lives.
These days, most of us work hard and spend our days jumping from one project to the next.
We have to catch our downtime and relaxation where we can! Fortunately, the plants and animals of the world are a tremendous resource, particularly when it comes to letting go of anxiety.
As we’ve seen before, keeping furry or feathered friends by your side can have an incredibly emotional impact.
But even if you aren’t in a position to have a pet, you don’t have to despair.
You can get tons of health benefits, both mental and physical, from even simpler living things.
Consider the humble potted plant — it might not snuggle or purr, but it can have a profound positive influence on your outlook.
What’s more, in many cases, is that positive influence extends to your whole-body health.
