Check the Roots

Inexperienced plant parents may not even realize that yellowing or browning leaves may be an indication that there is a problem with the roots of a plant. However, the condition of the roots beneath the soil can impact the health of an entire plant.

If you have been a plant parent for a few months or even years, you probably know that you have to check the roots of your plants from time to to time. Some plant lovers even suggest checking the roots of a new plant as soon as you introduce it into your home, so that you can determine if the plant immediately needs a new pot, new soil, or pest control measures.

Our lives are a lot like plants. When determining what we need in order to be happy, healthy, and successful, we may need to check our roots. Are there health conditions that run through your family tree that you need to talk to your doctor about? Has the absence of a loved one affected your emotional health? Did you experience a trauma in your childhood that is continuing to impact your life in adulthood? What is the actual cause of some of the symptoms you're experiencing at this very moment?

Check the roots of your problems, and then seek help for what's plaguing you. If you don't know where to start, ask a friend or family member for recommendations and referrals. If you don't feel comfortable discussing your issues with someone who knows you personally, reach out to, so that Life Coach Shereka Dunston (MSW) can point you in a helpful direction.
