The Power of Nurturing

• The Hippocampus is part of our brain that regulates stress and enhances memory
• In times of stress, it actually shrinks so it has less ability to regulate stress so that we start forgetting stuff

• Nurturing is VERY different from Fixing…
• Try a different perspective…Instead of being frustrated because they have so many plants, focus on becoming a better gardener…
• Winning them over to your way of thinking without considering theirs does not nurture a relationship
• Hear them out nurtures a relationship
• Focus on what matters and see how that nurtures your relationship
• Question: Is there a garden in your loved one’s life that would be greatly enriched by your becoming a better gardener? Is there a garden in your life where the plants could use the talents of your loved one?
