Yards and balconies that are cluttered or dirty put strain on you and anyone who sees or enters them. As you clean up and brighten the energy of your outdoor spaces all that positive energy will flow right back to you, which is why yard work can help you to move beyond stress, especially when you have been 'all in your head'. You are a part of nature and getting back to nature always restores a sense of balance.
Creating a humane back yard is another way to increase positive energy. Here's how The Humane Society of the United States says you can turn your outdoor area into a wildlife habitat, even if you have a tiny space!
Provide fresh water, a bowl or a bird bath. Change the water often.
Buy or grow native food source plants and trees for birds and other wildlife.
Avoid using fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides containing chemicals in your yard or on your balcony.
Avoid having bird feeders too close to glass windows so they don't fly into them.
If you have a yard, pile leaves and twigs into a corner or create small piles for small critters to hide and get warm during the winter.
Befriend bees by planting flowers they can use to pollinate or set up a tiny bee abode on your property.
Put up a bat house with seeds. Bats eat insects and pollinate plants.
Keep cats indoors for their own protection and the protection of small creatures.
