Achieve mindfulness this Christmas with top tips from Haskins Garden Centres

Christmas is a special time of the year for many people, but family stress and busy shops can make the festive season somewhat challenging. Haskins Garden Centres wants to remind customers to have a mindful Christmas, take a step back to reflect on the year, draw deep breaths and enjoy Christmas for all that it is.

Lisa Looker, brand director at Haskins, commented: “By now, the majority of you will have your Christmas tree proudly displayed in the home. We hope that you enjoyed choosing your tree, taking a moment to appreciate this special family experience.

“Real Christmas trees and their irreplaceable scent can have a profound and beneficial effect on health and wellbeing.”

  • Natural decorations such as mistletoe and poinsettias help connect us with nature.
  • Bringing evergreens and firs indoors has a soothing and rejuvenating effect and exposes us to ‘natural environments’.
  • The aromas of pine and ivy clear the airways, helping us breath more freely at a time when we’re prone to winter colds.
  • Holly eases hypertension and aids high blood pressure.
  • Real fir trees boast numerous medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory and anti-septic effects.

Haskins has centres in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton and Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex. For more information visit
