English Ivy’s is another that plant that removes toxins from the air. They can be grown into any shape and can grow in full sun or shade. With proper care, the English ivy can last for years in your space
-Digital Detox is what I often do to reduce stress. Unplugging from social media, smartphones, computers, television, and movies is sometimes necessary to rejuvenate your mind. Often modern devices are the cause of stress-related conditions. Choose real-life social interactions without the distraction of a device instead will boost your spirit and deepen your relationship with others.
-Go for a walk in nature. Whether it be on a lunch break, in the evening, early mornings or whenever you need a distraction a walk-in nature revives energy and renews the mind.
Lastly, welcome new beginnings, and open your heart and mind to the future. Write down new goals, plan for those goals, and accomplish them one small step at a time. Let go of old habits and toxic relationships. Throw away self- doubt that prevents you from succeeding. Develop a ritual to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new.
