Tu B’Shvat, also called the New Year for the Trees, is a Jewish holiday focused on nature and humankind’s stewardship of Earth, and serves as a time to reflect on personal growth and practice gratitude by appreciating the things in our lives we so often take for granted.
Like all living things, we are constantly growing and bettering ourselves. Just as we care for the trees, we also must care for ourselves. Just as we water a garden, we must nourish ourselves. When used as part of our own self-care, gratitude can play a large role in healing, both physically and mentally.
