5 Environmental Benefits of Landscaping

5 Steps To Mental Wellbeing That Landscaping Can Create

Most people’s first thought when they hear the words, ‘landscaping’ and ‘mental health’ will be that there is not much congruency between them. That is understandable as the worlds of garden landscapes and the wellbeing of our minds are two very distinctive subjects.

Most people will at least accept that a garden is a place where you can sit and relax, soak up the sunshine or play with your children, all of which are healthy pursuits and commensurate with feeling good. We could simply leave it at that as proof that a garden designed by yourself or landscape architects can have a positive impact on our mental health.

However, it goes much further than that, and if we focus on landscaping and how it can boost our mental health, there has not only been a lot written about this but there have even been studies and academic papers written on the subject too. Some of the research has found evidence that experiencing the outdoors and nature as you would when both creating and using a landscaped garden, can induce the following:

  • Improved Memory
  • Improved Attention
  • Happiness
  • Social Engagement
  • Reduced Stress
  • Improved Sleeping Patterns
  • Improved Task Management

Five Ways Sexual Harassment Can Impact Long Term Mental Health

Five Ways Sexual Harassment Can Impact Long Term Mental Health

Despite ever-tightening laws and increasing compliance monitoring, sexual harassment remains a huge problem in workplaces across Australia and the world. On top of the obvious distress and emotional issues it can cause, it’s possible for someone to suffer from long-term mental health problems due to harassment.

Because of this, it’s important to have your employer or employment lawyers get on top of any issues as soon as possible. In this article, we’ve explored five common illnesses that can rear their ugly heads as a result of ongoing workplace sexual harassment. But before we get into it, remember that harassment isn’t something that’s confined to women – men can be sexually abused as well.


First on our list is depression, one of the most common mental illnesses in the world. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most damaging, with severe depression effectively disabling a person.

Sexual harassment can lead to depression, but the effects aren’t always obvious immediately. In fact, recent studies suggest that it can manifest as long as five to ten years after the initial issue took place.

Bad Back

What Is Causing Your Bad Back?

A bad back can be caused by sitting down for long periods at a desk, tension, stress and also rushing around all the time. You maybe an architect or web designer where you are required to sit at a desk for long periods of time. Scheduling down time is important and you can do this more easily when you have alternative comfortable furniture to sit in. Creating an attractive alfresco space with comfortable outdoor furniture is a good way to enjoy some relaxation, but you must make sure you use it. All the quiet havens in the world won’t help you relax if you don’t spend time there.

If you have a bad backache it can really make your life miserable, especially if you don’t know what’s causing it. A bad back can prevent you from participating in sports, going shopping, walking for your health, and even sleeping well. It can stop you from being able to sit comfortably for any length of time, thus interfering with important relaxation.

While there are many causes of bad backs, the most likely are sleeping on a mattress that is old and does not support you in the right place or sitting on a lounge or computer chair that does not give your back the proper support. It is really essential to find out what is causing the problem and address it, to ensure your health is as good as possible.

7 Ways You Improve Your Health When Working In Your Landscaped Garden

7 Ways You Improve Your Health When Working In Your Landscaped Garden

Landscapers aren’t the only ones who love working in gardens, some people love working in a garden of their own, whether it be a small backyard or a large garden created from a landscaping design. In truth, the size does not matter, as gardens of all sizes give pleasure to those who use them and work in them. As well as enjoyment, there is another highly important benefit that gardens provide and that is they can help to maintain and improve your health and wellbeing.

You may wonder how this can be the case as the last time you visited their doctor, the prescription was for some pills, not ‘go mow the lawn’. However, if you were to ask that same doctor whether they recommend gardening to help boost your health, we are sure they would give a resounding “Yes” in reply. If you are still unclear as to how your garden can help boost your health, below are seven ways in which your landscaped garden provides you with health benefits.

#1 – It Can Help Lower Your Blood Pressure: By spending just 30 minutes each day working in your landscaped garden, that period of physical activity is enough to help prevent and control high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a major contributor to heart attacks and strokes so anything you can do, including gardening, to prevent it, should be pursued.

#2 – You Are Burning Calories: Another health benefit of regularly working in your garden is that you are burning calories as you do so. For example, weeding for 30 mins burns 180 calories and digging for 30 minutes means you will burn over 200 calories. Given that you can control your weight by reducing calories, the more you burn through gardening the more chance you have of maintaining a healthy weight.

This information is all perfectly valid and will hopefully give you confidence that dental implants are the right solution for replacing your tooth.

What you will also notice that the words tooth, and teeth are used in plentiful numbers, but very rarely do any of the articles and blog posts that relate to dental implant ever go into more detail about what those mean specifically. Ok, we all know what a tooth is, but in relation to dental implants they can be a replacement for more than one type of tooth.

This brings us nicely to the point when we flag up the fact that within our mouths there are four types of teeth that might be candidates for replacement should be ever lose them or they need be extracted. We hasten to add that we are pretty sure that a large proportion of the people reading this could not tell us what each those four types of teeth are called, what they are primarily used for, and here is another question…Do you know how many teeth you should have?

Well, assuming you are an adult, and a human being, the answer to that last question is 32. Now, before you proceed to divide 32 by 4 and assume that means we have 8 each of the different types, it does not work like that. Instead, here are the facts relating to our tooth types and their uses, and if you plan to go look in the mirror, where you can expect to find them.

Dental Sealants

Everything You Should Know About Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is a plastic coating a dentist, such as Dental O So Gentle will put on molars and premolars to protect them from decay. You use your molars and premolars for chewing, but each tooth has tiny fissures, or grooves, that even the most oral health-savvy person can have trouble cleaning.

Often, the fissures are smaller than a single brush bristle, meaning that bacteria acid from plaque can make its way into the enamel and cause cavities without you ever doing anything wrong. While toothpaste and water with fluoride can prevent decay and protect the surfaces of your teeth, dental sealants can too. What’s more, they smooth out those grooves in your teeth to reduce the risk of any acid getting into them.

When Do You Get Dental Sealants?

A dentist will usually place dental sealants on your first permanent molar as soon as it erupts through your gum’s surface. These teeth continue to grow, even as you reach around 11 or 12 years of age. While they usually only go on your chewing surface teeth, your dentist may also look at other baby teeth if they have grooves or pits too. It depends on the dentist and patient to determine the best course of action.

What You Need to Know about BodyBalance Exercise

The truth is, you’re not alone in how you feel, and a lot of people are nervous about starting something new. However, what you will find is that BodyBalance is something anyone can enjoy and benefit from, and you won’t be feeling new for too long.

BodyBalance involves not only low to medium intensity exercises such as Pilates, Tai Chi, and Yoga but incorporates meditation as well. Therefore, you may find it’s more manageable for your fitness or experience level than you think.

You Can Burn Calories

You don’t have to run a mile, sprint, and sweat up a storm to lose calories. If you enrol in a group fitness class such as BodyBalance, the combination of exercises can help you to burn up to 390 calories – that’s more than what you would burn after walking for an hour!

Sedation Dentistry

Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?

Are you one of the one in six people who fear the dentist? While your oral health is equally as important as your overall health, more Australians are likely to put off going to the dentist than a doctor appointment. However, in many cases, the longer you put it off, the bigger the problem and cost.

According to Perth based dentist Clear Choice Dental, when you fear the dentist, it can often be hard to convince yourself to go. Instead, you tell yourself the pain will go away, that you don’t need regular check-ups, and that your teeth are okay.  Instead of worrying and putting it off, why not consider sedation dentistry and make the experience far more pleasurable?

We’ve included a few of the many reasons why sedation dentistry could benefit you.

It Speeds Up the Process

When you’re scared of the dentist, or you require plenty of reassurance during your appointment, it’s not uncommon for you to be there longer than the appointment usually would take. While your dentist doesn’t mind going the extra mile to ensure you’re comfortable, it can mean that you’re in a situation you don’t want to be in for an extended period. If you consider sedation dentistry that puts you at ease, your dentist can carry out your treatment or procedure much quicker. As a result, you’re in and out the door at lightning speed.
