Connecting with nature.. when you live in an apartment!


I've been an "adult" for nine years, and out of those nine years, I have lived in an apartment for about 7 of those years. Needless to say, I know how to do apartment living!

When you do not have a yard and you live in a densely populated area, connecting with nature becomes more difficult, and if you're anything like me, that causes your spiritual health to suffer.


I've learned how to connect with nature while living in apartments, and it has improved my health physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! Now I will share my tips with you!


1. When the weather is agreeable- open all of your windows to let fresh air permeate your home! What all do you do when you are at home? How much of that can you do on your patio? If there's anything you can do on your patio or balcony, make a conscience effort to start doing so! I taught myself to read, make grocery lists, text, Facebook, and eat out on the patio, just being out there, breathing in all that fresh air and feeling the breeze on my skin and hair is therapeutic for me, and I guarantee it will be for you, too!


2. Bring the sounds of nature inside! Singing birds, ocean waves, babbling brooks, and rain- all of these sounds are calming to humans and the benefits to listening to them (on YouTube, Spotify, or CD) are felt immediately!


3. Oil diffuser- I love essential oils! There are a few that really help me to feel immersed in nature when it's too cold to keep windows open and you're stuck inside with stagnant air. Cedar, Clary Sage, Lemon Grass, and Lavender- just to name a few! There are also some great blends by Doterra!


4. Indoor plants! Go for air detoxifying house plants like Areca Palm, Aloe Vera, Peace Lily, Rubber Plant, Mother-in-law's Tongue, Purple Waffle Leaf Plant, Golden Pothos, English Ivy, Money Plant, Spider Plant, and Red Edged Dracaena. I also found the best mobile in the world and am collecting the adorable little globe terrariums you see in the photo I posted along with this post! I give them names like Madame Pomfrey and Neville Longbottom. And yes, I do talk to them while I spritz them with water.




5. Last of all- schedule time once a week to head out to some nearby woods, a mountain top, or the beach! 

If you're feeling disconnected from nature and feeling the effects of it such as depression, fatigue, or anxiety, then try these methods and see for yourself how much it helps!

I'm new, please love me!


Hello, faeries! My name is Belladonna, as in the poisonous lily. I grew up in the greatest decade of all time, which I don't need to tell you is the 1990's. I am a mother, a wife, an eclectic witch, a professional dancer, and a student of the universe. 

I have an absolutely gorgeous husband who looks like a vampire and I truly enjoy pretending that he is indeed a vampire. It's all very sexy. I have an 8-year-old stepson who I've raised since he was still in diapers- Gray. He is great at memorizing ridiculously long scenes from books and movies and wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up. My first born child is my soon to be 7-year-old son Damien, he is extremely energetic and I do not mind admitting that I cannot keep up with him! He loves playing games and draws the cutest pictures. Our daughter Avalon is my little shadow! She loves me like no one ever has and I have never met a better snuggler! On top of that, she's really into Halloween all year round, and I struggle to think of anything cooler than that!

You could say I am blessed, I love my life and the people in it! I don't have many people in my life, but that's the way I like it! I do not come from a large family and I've always had a tough time making long lasting meaningful friendships. I am absolutely fine with getting all of my socialization online, that's where I seem to shine and actually have the ability to socialize. In person, I tend to shrink away from fellow humans, going as far as to hide or change directions if I see someone I know (and even like!) That's why I think blogging will be a wonderful new endeavor for me! When my absolutely magical friend invited me to blog on here, I took it as a sign to really dive back into writing!

I will be blogging about countless different topics, but there a few topics that you are guaranteed to see from me: home schooling, modern paganism, self-improvement, and the weird/wacky/crazy stuff that happens to me. I think my life makes for good reading. In the future, I would love it if you would let me know if you think so, too!
