6. A Zen gardenThis is a miniature landscape, stylised through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, moss, water features, plants, pruned trees and bushes. It is similar to creating a bonsai. It is an ideal aid for meditative practices as it essentially imitates nature. It is usually surrounded by walls and is meant to be enjoyed from the outside, according to the Japanese Zen gardening tradition.Tip: Incorporate a healthy mix of the fundamental elements (water, earth, air, and space) of nature to your Zen garden. The very essence of creating a Zen garden lies in bringing stillness and tranquility into your life, which requires a balance of all the elements.

Moss and pebblesThis indoor Zen garden features natural stones placed purposefully in a sea of lush moss and pebbles. A few plants add more foliage and textures, and within a small space, the scene of a great island is created, with the pebbles representing the sea.Interesting fact:These gardens traditionally featured in Zen temples from the 14th century in Japan, representing the essence of nature and aiding in meditation.
