The Grow.Bar & City Living: Cultivating Apartment Therapy

If you have ever lived in a big city, chances are good you lived in a tiny apartment. The majority of city-dwellers live in apartments, regardless of size. And apartment life, for all it's benefits, creates some unhealthy obstacles. City life is a concrete jungle. To remain truly happy, balanced and healthy in these environments individuals must take their atmospheres into their own hands. The skyscrapers and pavement are not going to do it for you.

Apartment living simply requires a little therapy. If you want to live the best life possible, you will need to take some steps to better yourself. Especially if you plan a long-term residence in an apartment or small city space. It makes sense fiscally for many people to live in apartments. And for some it's a decision based on convenience or preference. Whatever the reasons may be, to keep yourself and your family healthy you need to cultivate your own environment. And one that starts with including plant life.

When you live surrounded by concrete and metal your primal instincts are being challenged. We are organic creatures. We as human beings need oxygen to breath and nutrition to survive. We are part of the cycle of life here on earth. And city life can be an environment that removes some of our basic needs. This can cause extreme amounts of stress and anxiety for people. Even if they do not recognize the issues.

Growing greens in your apartments can literally help relieve stress symptoms and will create an overall sense of well-being. Studies have shown patients in hospitals to have improved healing rates and heightened attitudes when being surrounded by plants. And many studies show that living with plants indoors helps create a zen-like experience. So instead of raking sand in a zen garden, try altering your homes feng shui with the Grow.Bar. Harmonize yourself with your environment and create a more natural state of being.

Using Grow.Bar vegetables in your home will also help to clean the air. City life comes with an enormous amount of air pollution. And city apartment buildings are a breeding ground for airborne dust and carbon dioxide.  Green life in your kitchen or home can help to reduce carbon dioxide levels, while increasing the level of oxygen. Plants indoors have even been proven to help alleviate cold, asthma and allergy symptoms. You can think of the Grow.Bar as your new small room air purifier.

Gardening and growing your own food also helps to improve the overall health of apartment dwellers.  Growing what you eat has a profound affect on both your mental and physical health. The process creates a sense of self-satisfaction and sustainability that is unparalleled to other methods. Implementing our microgreens into your weekly meal plans will also significantly increase your vitamin and nutrient intake.

Like most city dwellers habitually do, the Grow.Bar will keep you from ordering takeout every other night. And NASA has even created a space station study that is helping investigators develop procedures and methods that allow astronauts to grow and safely eat space-grown vegetables (NASA - Growing plants in space). Talk about small space living!

A healthy lifestyle and finding happiness start at home. And small space living is no excuse to remove what is most basic to your nature and best for your well-being. Bring the outdoors inside and pay attention to the changes in makes in your everyday life. Maybe you will start to breathe better or find the knots in your back have disappeared. Or perhaps when you begin creating smoothies with our Grow.Bar Smoothie Seed Kit Blend® you realize it's not only your taste buds that are benefiting, but also your psychological and physical health.
