The Path to Enlightenment is Paved with Trees

By Living Room Realty, May 24, 2019

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. — Frank Lloyd Wright

Have you ever wondered why nature is so calming? When I feel stressed and about to reach my breaking point, I crave the tranquility of verdant wooded areas to help clear my head and leave me recharged.

Recent studies have proven that spending time in green spaces can lower our blood pressure and even alleviate anxiety and depression. This research has played a major roll in cities choosing to invest in parks and gardens that break up vast concrete jungles and create healthy areas for their inhabitants.

With all that in mind, it’s no wonder that the stunning southwest Portland home I had the pleasure of selling recently was so popular. In fact it went pending in just four days. As you step inside, among the open floor plan and stylish details, the huge windows showcase the forest that surrounds you. Thoughtfully designed sliding doors give way to an expansive deck surrounded by a peaceful thicket of trees.

Just moments to some of my favorite local spots to experience the restorative power of greenery. The Portland Japanese gardens, the Rose Garden, and the Hoyt Arboretum are all perfect places to take a breather. Step inside and immediately feel calm, centered and focused.

If you are looking for your next dream home, or need to sell your current home to make that move, I’d love to be a resource for you! Give me a call and let’s talk about how to make that dream a reality. In the meantime take a walk outside, breath in the outdoors that surrounds you, and remember that there is only now.
