How do you bring nature into your home?

It is important to keep a connection to nature in our lives. It helps us stay grounded and calm. Potted house plants are an easy way I like to bring life and nature into my home. Plants are helpful in filtering the air, which is especially important in the winter when we don’t get a lot of fresh clean air into our homes. I also enjoy diffusing essential oils as it is a great way to enhance my current mood and bring the smell of nature in. Adding natural materials with my furniture, décor, and clothing is something I’m being more conscious of in creating those natural vibes. I even have pictures of plants and naturescapes from my travels hanging on my wall to remind me of great memories in nature. In what ways do you add nature into your home?

I love having and taking care of my house plants,. I’m mindful as I water them, so grateful for the oxygen they provide,. I’m grateful for my pets as well as a connection to nature.

I love plants as well. Orchids are my favorite. I talk to them and make me feel happy since I have been feeling down and lonely!

I absolutely love bringing nature into my home! I have multiple plants in my bedroom as well as throughout the house. My favorites are pothos plants because they grow quickly, are low maintenance, and bring a perfect pop of color and life to any room. Although real plants are my favorite, I put smaller fake plants in my bathrooms with no windows since there isn’t as much light, and they still bring a bright, light feeling to any room!
