Living in the city & trying to gain rebalance fast I found the easiest method to relieve stress was by growing plants indoors. Taking the time to take care of something and seeing the rewards of patience and nurture.
When working on self-improvement we might not see the changes overnight but seeing whatever you sew grow puts a better perspective on the process.
With great luck I came to own a plot in an allotment and came to find that the allotment would be my favourite staycation spot.
You can start small at home even if you dont have a garden. It might be hard to get your own allotment but there is the option of volunteering at allotment where you may have the space to grow your very own wonders.
If you want to do it right – lets start right!
To be prepared go to a gardening store or you can source the seeds/cuttings off fruit and vegetables in store – but be realistic ! I read an avocado tree takes years to grow & they may not even grow fruit.
We started with placing the seeds in a nursery and transferred them into bigger pots at different stages of their growth – it did take a few months before the fruits grew
we grew these by the window and eventually placed them by the terrace when the weather was hotter.
A year later we still get chillies growing by the kitchen window.
