Why Gardening Should Be Part of Your Self-Care Routine

When it comes to self-care, gardening might not be the first thing you think of, unless you’re already an avid gardener, in which case you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. But, it is fair to say that gardening can be one of the best ways to boost your wellness that there is. 

Think about it, gardening takes you outdoors and enables you to spend some peaceful time amongst beautiful, fragrant plants and flowers. It will also give you at least a light workout if you are doing it right, and we all know how good exercise is for our body and mind health right? 

Gardening can also give you a great sense of accomplishment. When you’ve planted something from seed and nurtured it to fruition, and maybe even incorporated it into a healthy meal for the whole family to enjoy, there is no feeling quite like it. It’s a real self-esteem booster, and lord knows we all need a boost to our self-esteem from time to time don’t we? That’s why you should think about adding gardening to your self-care routine. 

But it’s not just that, gardening has so many health benefits that we could sit here talking about them all day. We aren’t going to do that, we don’t need to because this infographic goes into detail about every single health and wellness benefit of gardening, all of which have been proven by extensive research. If you don’t want to take up gardening after reading this, then you aren’t serious bout self-care!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
