Gardening has brought out the best in me. Experimenting with growing different plants and playing with their positions within the space to capture the most sunlight has brought me much joy! My social circle has expanded due to this hobby too! We share tips with one another freely and look out for all the plants, whether or not it’s ours. Away from the work environment, my colleagues are more relaxed and child-like.
This occupation develops me physically, mentally and spiritually. Prepping the land by weeding and digging, sowing seeds, watering and thinning plants is a good cardiovascular workout! Being in the garden helps me relax and be in the moment. Omm… Looking at greenery has a positive effect on my well-being.
Hence, going to the garden before work, during lunch break or after a long day at work enriches me, in more ways than one.
