I am so thrilled with the flowers and colours in our garden. I must give credit to Elliott or the previous owners who threw seeds down in the flowerbed. This summer the flowers have bloomed with conviction.
When I look at the flowers each day I can’t help but smile. They’re stunning! It got me thinking about a conversation I had with my brother on feeling depressed.
(Now, I know depression is a complex thing) – and we’re no experts…
But what he and I spoke about made sense. And I am confident it would be helpful.
When one would “feel blue” – one could sit outside in their garden.
Or one could do half an hour exercise.
And now I add, one could tend to a garden. Water the flowers. Take out the weeds.
Or even, get yourself a pet. Caring for a dog, and receiving the love from a dog – would do wonders for anyone…
I think doing these things would help someone who is feeling depressive…
