In between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, time some time to think about your extended family. Visit Your Relatives Day is about staying in touch with close relatives, and taking a day to remind them they’re still in your thoughts.

What is Garden Meditation Day?

People have been practicing garden meditation for centuries now. It’s the perfect form of being one with nature, and using its resources to calm and soothe the soul. If gardens can sustain life on this planet, then why couldn’t it sustain the spirit as well. Garden Meditation Day is about finding that soothing environment and allowing you to focus in a stress-filled world.

When is it?

Garden Meditation Day always falls on May 3rd.

How would you celebrate this holiday?

Take some time on May 3rd to tend to your garden and take a breather – whether it’s for a short break or more than an hour. If you don’t have a garden to visit, go visit a neighbor’s garden or visit one of your city’s natural attractions. It’s also a great opportunity to start your own garden and enjoy the spoils of your garden for next year’s Garden Meditation Day.
