Life is full of challenges and challenges create tensions. The burden of work at the office, unsettled loans, the antics of children and negative attitudes of friends, sometimes make our life quite miserable.
Do not torture your life by continuously living under pressure. Apart from finding ways to overcome the problems, you can do something that could help you to at least temporarily escape from the maddening situation. You have many options. Traveling, sporting events, fishing and watching films are some of them. If you are a homely type, I suggest that you pick up gardening as way of releasing your tension.
One may argue that the lack of space in the city would not make this activity possible. Actually, what I am trying to suggest is not to work on a vegetable plot or orchard, but to grow plants or vegetables within the compound of your house. You can even grow chilies, brinjals, tomatoes, sawi and many other vegetables in pots or poly bags in your compound. I have done this and believe me, seeing your plants grow, bearing flowers and fruits, give you a sense of happiness and satisfaction. Apart from creating a colourful atmosphere in your little heaven, the fruits of your labour taste better on the dining table, especially if you chose organic farming.
