My Pro Tip:
Staying inside and long winter days can affect our mood and our immune system. Adding plants can make your home or workspace a healthier place this winter.
For many people, especially older or isolated adults, plants are also a source of purpose and comfort. Plant care is an easy and healthy hobby for all ages that offers a positive practice to encourage overall well-being.
When you want to practice self-care or give a caring gift, a plant is always a meaningful way to support mental or physical wellness.
