Garden Media Releases Highly Anticipated 2018 Garden Trends Report: Nature’s Rx for Mental Wellness
In today’s world, it is almost impossible to escape the realities of social media, instant news, 24/7 connectivity and the mental exhaustion that follows.
The rising trend of wellness isn’t just about keeping the body healthy anymore; it’s about keeping the mind and spirit healthy, too.
In Garden Media Group’s 17th annual Garden Trends Report for 2018, Nature’s Rx for Mental Wellness, nature is the best medicine.
The 2018 report introduces seven industry trends that inspire a cleaner, more relaxed state-of-mind. It shows that when we disconnect from media and reconnect with Mother Nature, we can make steps towards rebuilding our mental wellness.
“We all know gardening works wonders for our physical health,” says Katie Dubow, creative director at the trend-spotting firm. “In our 2018 Garden Trends report we’re looking at new ways people are transforming their spaces, indoors and out, to further improve their mental well-being.”
The report highlights new ideas, new garden structures and new colors to help clear our mind and step away from the infinite connectivity that is wearing us out.
The 2018 Garden Trends Report allows us to be confident in Wabi-Sabi, going with the flow of being perfectly imperfect. It dives deeper into the role of climate change in our gardens, showing also how plants form their own social networks to cope with challenging conditions.
Gardening is again shifting to reflect global changes. The 2018 Garden Trends Report closely examines how these changes affect gardeners.
