The New Year is just around the corner, which means goal-setting season is here! To make sure your resolutions don’t fall short by February, try a new approach this year with greenery goals that are sure to help you master your health, home and lawn. We’ve rounded up top resolutions and plant-inspired solutions for the best year yet.
Resolution: Eat healthier
Plant Solution: Grow herbs to inspire new dishes to cook at home.
The secret to tackling one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions? Staying inspired. Herbs are easy to grow in your kitchen windowsill and will inspire you to try new, fresh and healthy dishes and drinks. Trading take-out for a resolution-approved meal is easier than you think when you have homegrown ingredients to encourage tasty and mindful eating.
Resolution: Exercise more.
Plant Solution: Spend time outside and surround yourself with green.
Gym memberships skyrocket every January, so rather than waiting in line for the elliptical machine, conquer your goal with some fresh air. Trade your stationary bike for a ride down to the park, and the stair stepper for a hike on a local trail. Not only is spending time outdoors a great way to exercise, but it also has proven benefits for your mental and emotional health.
Resolution: Save (more) money
Plant Solution: Save time and consider lawn/garden services will be the most valuable to you for 2019.
It might seem early to be thinking about lawn care in January, but now it is a great time to look into which lawn and garden services might be a fit for you this year. Resolve to take back your Saturdays by opting for a lawn care service to keep your property looking great while giving you more time to spend time doing the things you enjoy, with the people you love. Consider what pest problems are most prominent in your area and research preventative steps you can take to avoid harmful bug bites and damage to your home.
Resolution: Focus on self-care
Plant Solution: Turn your home into a plant-filled sanctuary.
Plants can transform spaces in your home, purify the air and add a restful ambiance to the rooms you enjoy most – and studies show that being around greenery improves concentration, boosts your mood and reduces stress levels. Decorate with green and stay ahead of the trends by adding a rubber tree to your living room or Aloe Vera by your desk.
Resolution: Learn a new skill
Plant Solution: Hop on the gardening trend by taking the time to research your new plants and how to care for them.
Whether a single desk plant, a windowsill of succulents or an entire garden full of herbs, maintaining plants is a rewarding hobby that offers long-lasting benefits for your physical and mental health. Spend time researching which plants will grow best in your region and home, and don’t be afraid to ask the experts at your local lawn and garden center for help!
- Pro tip: Design a garden that will compliment your love language, and love you back all year long.
This year, resolve to get back-to-the-basics, harness your green thumb and spend your time enjoying beautiful green spaces. Nothing says fresh start more than plant-inspired resolutions for the New Year.
