Motivational Monday: Enjoy the Little Things

Happy Mondayyyy!

Another fresh start to a new week and new goals.

For this week let’s shift our focus and priority on enjoying the little things in life. Although we are still facing chaos within our community as the virus still spreads, we must turn this sad situation into something positive.

Adhering to stay at home orders and guidance from local government can be challenging and simply depressing. I am sure many of you can agree that this season that we are facing is taking a toll on our mental health. Staying inside can derail your everyday activities and turn you into a couch potato.

I highly recommend for you to keep a schedule and pick up a hobby. With cancelled plans and vacations, you have more time to devote to something you enjoy and love. I have decided to buy some indoor plants to liven up my home space and add some greenery to my life. Plants are great and have many benefits. Some benefits include: stress reducer, improve air quality, and helps lower background noise.

Heartleaf Philodendron & Devil’s Ivy

I decided to pick out two tropical foliages for my home. Foliage plants really add a fresh of breath air to your home. They are extremely attractive and are very low maintenance to care for. On the left is a Heartleaf Philodendron and on the right is a Devil’s Ivy.

This past weekend I began doing a lot of research on indoor plants and care recommendations. I came across a very helpful youtube channel, Planterina. Amanda Switzer, is a plant expert and I really enjoy watching her videos on Planterina. I have learned so much about the essentials that plants need to grow from water, nutrients, air, water, light, temperature, space, and time.

In the coming weeks I will be expanding my plant collection and I have also been contemplating whether or not I want to plant a outdoor garden of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Continue following for updates in the coming weeks.

Please share in the comments if this post has inspired you to add a plant to your family. Maybe, even post a picture of your new plant or any other plants you may already have at home. What are your favorite types of plants?

I would also appreciate your help in helping me name my two house plants above. Comment your name recommendations below. Until Wednesday… enjoy the little things (plants) in life.
