According to the TAYO Naman! mental health webinar series for teachers, taking care of plants makes people feel productive. In the middle of a pandemic where many factors have rendered people feeling helpless, planting has allowed people a sense of purpose and control, seeing how their efforts are able to bring forth growth and new life. Connecting with nature also has mental health benefits since doing so makes people feel calmer and less stressed. We encourage people to get into planting. Not only will you feel more mentally healthy, nakatulong ka pa kay Mother Earth.
