A Mindful Moment in 30-60 Minutes: Gardening

Gardening can be as simple or as complex as you would like it to be.  Mindfully gardening can apply as much to someone growing a succulent as someone growing a greenhouse or estate garden. 

For this exercise, choose one plant, tree, or flower.  Focus on one part of the plant.  Pay attention to the colours, smells, textures, and shapes that nature has given you.  Mentally gather as much information about the plant as you can.  Take photos or make a sketch that will help you remember the most beautiful parts.  Alternatively, you can use a journal to record your observations and gratitude for what nature has given you. 

Gardening is one of those activities that can give you years of mindful moments.
