Inspired by Nature: Ideas to Connect with Mother Nature Indoors
Feb 12, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

Spending time outside isn’t necessary to connect with mother nature. In fact, try bringing nature indoors by getting creative. Here are a few ideas you can try to enhance your home environment.

Use Arts and Crafts Skills

You may not need any art supplies to create a work of art. In fact, sometimes simple creations can make a bold impact. Therefore, don’t worry about being an experienced artist. You can gather objects from outside such as leaves, sticks, flowers or anything you feel like incorporating in your art. Make a wall hanging, pretty rock display or natural terrarium. If you’d rather use art supplies, pick some up at a store or purchase them online. You can paint or draw a beautiful picture of a natural landscape. Gain skills by taking a class, or reading a tutorial or book. Besides this, you can buy an amazing work of art by shopping at places like Etsy.

Plant an Indoor Herb Garden

Indoor herb gardens are often easy to grow and maintain. Moreover, plants provide oxygen to the environment. After you grow them, you can add fresh herbs to salads, soups and other delicious dishes. Herbs you can grow inside the house include mint, basil, parsley, rosemary, oregano, thyme, common sage and chives. Avoid many pests that thrive outdoors and enhance your living space with herb plants. Plants can make you feel more positive, productive and peaceful. You can also improve your home while being more eco-friendly by using solar panels. It’s very important to learn about solar panel cost and the many benefits of having solar panels installed.

Add Nature Scents or Sounds

Listening to nature sounds or smelling natural scents can have a calming effect on your mind, body and spirit. Immerse yourself in the pleasantness nature has to offer. Further, consider downloading an app for listening to nature sounds such as birds chirping or a waterfall. You may also add scents with an essential oil diffuser. A few essential oils are peppermint, cinnamon, frankincense, lavender or others. Make sure to read the directions for proper use. Depending on which oil you use, benefits may include sharper concentration, less headaches, better sleep and relaxation, boost memory and stress reduction among others.

Utilize Nature Designs

You can hire a professional designer to fix up the interior of your home, or do it yourself. Try purchasing items such as curtains, chairs, comforters or others with nature designs. Wallpaper imprinted with leaves or floral designs is another unique option. You can also incorporate natural wood furniture into your home. If you’re a skilled woodworker, you can make your own furniture. Crafters have the chance to use their talents to knit a colorful blanket or weave a tapestry to place on a wall. Adding handmade items to your home can bring an artistic element into the picture.

Grow or Buy Flowers

Create a decorative table centerpiece by placing flowers in a vase in your kitchen, living room, home office or dining area. You can grow a garden you love with roses, daisies, jasmine or tulips, and use these to create an indoor arrangement. Further, you may purchase fresh flowers or pick up fabric flowers at a craft store. Craft stores have a large selection to choose from. You can decorate your house on a budget while making it appear attractive. Add a pop of color to a particular room or put flowers all over the place. Brighten your days with an admirable floral arrangement, or just place your favorite flower in a jar to look at. Additionally, use these to inspire you to take a break from a stressful day.

You can reap the benefits of nature, even if you rarely go outdoors. The ideas in this list are simple, aesthetically pleasing and may even be beneficial to your well-being. Reminding yourself of nature, wherever you may be, can be good for your health, happiness and peace of mind.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
