Pocket Guide to Thriving Outside & Healing Inside:

Sanctuary Space Styling with Colors, Elements, Symbols, 2017

icon_2#POSITIVEMOMENTARYDISTRACTION

Photos & quotes are part of a #thriveoutsidehealinside collection curated over the decades – resources that I turn to for inspiration, empowerment & reassurance – not unlike my healing relationship with my garden & nature beyond.
What’s up with the name? Research shows that even in a very busy life, small sips of views of nature-based positive distractions, yet momentary, reduce pain, anxiety, stress, fatigue, distress & other physiological & psychological outcomes.
Find the entire collection over in the blog archives.
