National Garden Meditation Day

We all need a little tranquility in our lives from time to time, so why not celebrate National Garden Meditation Day on May 3rd? It is a day that encourages all those who observe it to take some time for themselves, take a deep breath, and relax. Let’s find out more about this much-needed celebration of meditation.

What Is National Garden Meditation Day?

Any time spent in the garden is time well spent. Tending to the flowers, mowing the lawn, and trimming the bushes to see the fruits of your labor can have a therapeutic effect that few other activities can offer. With so many benefits, it is great to have a day that encourages us to be mindful and appreciate the fresh air and quiet that comes from the garden.

Feeling stressed about work? A little pruning can help fix that. Aching muscles and joints? Gardening can help to loosen those joints and provide a gentle way of keeping mobile. We haven’t even mentioned the daily dose of vitamin D that everyone so badly needs for a healthy lifestyle.

Even the sounds of the garden can be enough to help you relax. The birds and the breeze causing the leaves to dance and sway are two relaxing melodies that can be found in the comfort of the garden.

How To Observe National Garden Meditation Day

The best way is to be mindful when sitting in the garden. May 3rd encourages people to relax in the garden, and you don’t need to have green fingers to observe it. By simply relaxing with a book or a cool glass of lemonade, you can enjoy National Garden Meditation Day.

Invite a friend over and spend some time in the shade under the sun, talking and enjoying the peace that comes through garden meditation. Some will share their relaxing moments on social media. If you do, be sure to use the hashtag #NationalGardenMeditationDay.
