Relieve Stress at a Botanical Garden
Many of us have not spent much time in nature since we are trying to avoid crowds at beaches, and do not want to cross paths with hikers on narrow trails. So where can we get outdoors and be surrounded by flowers, herbs, trees, orchards, and abundant beauty?
Botanical gardens are an excellent way to recharge your body, mind, and spirit. Breathe deeply in the fresh air, and take in the multitude of vibrant colors and the bounty of our natural world. Kids love them, even babies get wide-eyed and excited to roam the landscape.
Many are open even during the Covid pandemic, and are either free or not terribly costly. Here is a list for the Bay Area , and there are plenty more you can find by Googling your zip code and the words “botanical gardens.
Boost Immunity with Spring Onion Stalk
Often acupuncturists will advise their patients to stir fry cong bai with black beans, ginger, and white pepper, as this combination strengthens the protective Qi (immune system).
And if you do happen to fall ill it can help Release the Exterior (meaning relieve early symptoms of cough, fever, chills, shivering, and fatigue).
Feel free to add it to vegetable or meat stock soups nightly too, especially while it’s still chilly out and the spring winds are blowing.
