"I used to, but then I got busy." "I started, but I couldn't stick to it." "I tried it once, didn't like it, and gave up on it." "I've tried and tried, and it just hasn't worked out." We have made these comments about mindfulness, meditation, succulents, or that one perennial that everyone seems to have such an easy time with that just seems to hate your yard. And we say that about our mental health practices. How do people with robust mental health maintain their practices? And shouldn't I be able to find a routine, and just keep it? Answer these questions and more as we explore sustainability in mental health, and some of our longest lived plant friends. · Explore mental health as a consistent process, as opposed to a fixed issue · How to tackle "pattern" issues; chronic health, ongoing issues, etc · Day to day sustainability: What keeps long lived plants going? What keeps us going on the daily? Each participant will select and pot a "long living" plant and will be provided with a mental health and wellness reflection sheet.
