Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day

Your flower beds are full and your vegetable garden is producing. All your plants are happy and accounted for. Oh, wait! What about your houseplants!?! When was the last time you even looked at them? According to the creators of Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day, which takes place today, "Walking your plants around the neighborhood enables them to know their environment, thereby providing them with a sense of knowing, bringing on wellness." Those houseplants will be neglected no more, and in the process, they'll get to see the neighborhood, and get some extra sunlight. Maybe they'll even get to meet some of those flowers and vegetables you've been spending so much time with. Afterward, they'll be rejuvenated and happy, and they'll know a little bit more about where they reside, which will boost their overall wellness!

How to Observe Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day

Take your houseplants for a walk around your neighborhood. If you have just one or two plants, you could carry them around by hand. If you have a lot, or if some are big, set them in a wagon and pull them around. Take them by your outdoor plants so they can meet each other. Show them other highlights of your neighborhood that they've never seen. You'll be giving them a little extra sun in the process. Before bringing them back inside, give them a drink of water from your outdoor water source.
