Landscaping for Lower Stress

senior_macon_garden   If you've ever driven by John-Wesley Villas, or visited during one of the many events we hold,  you are probably already aware that we devote a great deal of time to our landscaping. We have a talented team that keeps the property looking beautiful. Our residents love to sit outside and enjoy the view, or walk outside their backdoor to see what's blooming in their own container gardens. Making things beautiful for our residents in one reason we spend so much time creating  green space, but are there other benefits? According to Psychology Today, plants have been shown to:  
  • Lower blood pressure (systolic)
  • Improve reaction times
  • Increase attentiveness
  • Improve attendance (at work and school)
  • Raise productivity (at work)
  • Improve well-being
  • Improve perceptions of the space
  • Lower levels of anxiety during recovery from surgery
  • Raise job satisfaction
WOW.  If you're experiencing any of the above, make a trip to your local nursery and pick up some stress-reliever and potting soil! Or, just join us at John-Wesley Villas. You're welcome to come take a stroll anytime.
