Gardening - a psychotherapy from the COVID-19 era

Info

As spring in the Northern Hemisphere this year coincides with a time when many governments around the world imposed travel restrictions to prevent the COVID-19 epidemic, many have turned to gardening as a hobby. glad to amuse at this point.

Until now, gardening enthusiasts have thought that cultivation is a way of connecting with nature. Now, for them, this job has become a useful method to help relieve their worries and worries, at least during the current crisis caused by COVID-19.

For Ms. Lindsay Waldrop, a resident of California (USA), who suffers from an anxiety disorder, gardening is more than a psychological therapy. Regular exercise is thought to be effective, but her new job - a professor specializing in biology - makes it difficult for her to maintain a regular schedule.

Ms. Waldrop and her husband used to live in New Mexico state, but had no luck in gardening due to the harsh climate here. When she moved into her new home last summer, she embarked on designing a garden and planted dozens of tomato plants, eggplants, peppers and other fruits and vegetables. During the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Waldrop has had more time to focus on tending her garden.

She shared: 'Sometimes I just sit down and quietly dig holes in the dirt with my own thoughts. It helps to clear my mind as my hands still have work to do. This work makes you think about something else instead of what's going on. It also takes you away from social media, which is full of terrible news and numbers about the disease '.

Not only Ms. Waldrop, families also find gardening fun for the children, who are feeling the urge to stay inside the house to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. Annika Bolanos, who made a living as a baker at home and helped with her husband's books in Miami, Florida, along with her three children, became more busy growing vegetables and herbs. She said the children are very interested in farming and love to eat food made from fruits grown and harvested by themselves. The children focus on taking care of the trees every day, enjoying the sun and the wind without worrying about anything now.

However, not everyone is fortunate to own a private gardening land. Ms. Kendra Schilling lives in West Virginia, USA, has no spacious garden. She planted potatoes in a bucket and tried to show her daughter how to plant.

In England and Germany, gardeners have to pay a fee to rent a plot of farmland. For the past eight years, Ms. Heidi Schaletzky and her husband have grown vegetables and fruits in a community garden called "Free Country" in the north of Berlin. Currently, the travel restriction order to prevent COVID-19 epidemic in Germany does not affect access to gardens here.

While restrictive measures in response to the COVID-19 epidemic have forced billions of people around the world to stay at home, horticulture not only provides self-sufficient food for families but also love. likes of both adults and children, and strengthens cohesion among family members.
