Subtitle A Plant-Care & Self-Care Guide for the Modern Houseplant Parent
Description Description In Happy Plants, Happy You, author Kamili Bell Hill of @PlantBlerd shows you that spending quality time with your plants is spending quality time with yourself.
Houseplants are so much more than a living decorative accent for your home or a relaxing hobby, and caring for houseplants should not be a mindless task. Instead, it’s an opportunity to check in with yourself as you check in with your plants
. You’ll learn how houseplants can help you avoid burnout and bring a healthy focus to your own self-care. As it turns out, when you tend to your houseplants, you’re also tending to yourself.
Houseplants have a lot of lessons to teach about relationships and the importance of a little give and take, including how to focus on the ones who love you back
and how—like getting rid of a dead leaf or a mealybug—sometimes you gotta cut bait and bail on relationships that are bringing you down. Author Kamili Bell Hill used houseplants to exit the stress highway
that was overtaking her life and she knows they can do the same for you.
