At The Nice Plant, we believe that plant care and self care go hand in hand.

Our mission is to provide you with a state of mindfulness and serenity by the use of plants. It's often difficult for us to slow down and practice mindfulness in our daily lives, given the workload that always seems to be in front of us!

Plants can be an intimate part of our lives and homes.. Especially in small living spaces in the big cities, we believe that plants have the power to ground us onto a better self care journey

There’s something about being surrounded by nature that settles us to be in a different mindset. As we breathe the fresh air that nature provides us we instantly feel connected and cared for. It suddenly resembles that comfort-feeling of coming home after months of being homesick. That harmonious state between yourself and nature is what makes plant life so addicting! 

We asked some of our IG friends to weigh in on how caring for plants has helped them practice mindfulness. 

Here's what they said...

Taking care of plants really became important during COVID in that I still felt connected to nature and felt like an escape from my everyday life. Everytime a plant thrives in my care, it makes me happy since I am a caring and nurturing person”

[Plant care] is a reminder to drink more water and never stop growing.

As plant parents, we love taking care of our plant babies and watching them grow every step of the way. We shower them with unconditional love, attention, and positivity from the moment we take them home. Along the way of the plant journey, you then discover growth–were not just talking about your plant baby, but spiritual and personal growth. Like we said before, they ground us! In the most unexpected and humbling way, plants bond with us.

“It is essential.  It has taught me how to be more in the moment and how to be mindful with other things occurring in my life.  As a therapist, I teach people about self care and using plants as a method of self care all of the time.”

“I love taking care of something outside of my self. I feel meditative and calm when I’m taking care of my plants, repotting and buying new accessories. It’s a very calming, enjoyable sensory experience for me and makes my environment so much more green and happy!”
