Many people experience stress and anxiety every now and then. One of the most common anxiety people have is dental anxiety. This is especially true when they are about to undergo treatments like tooth implant surgery. While the procedure has been proven safe and has a high success rate, many people still feel anxious about getting tooth implants.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of things you can do to help manage your stress and anxiety, especially before a safe procedure like tooth implant surgery. One of the things you can do to calm your nerves down is to visit quiet and relaxing places. If you live in Singapore, below are some of the places you can visit.
Amazingly, this serene inner city retreat is already 162 years old! No wonder it is the most visited garden in the whole world. Regarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the botanical garden is home to an exquisite array of tropical flowers and plants. What’s even better? Admission is free!
Inside the world-renowned botanical garden, you will find relaxing and flourishing pathways that lead to lily ponds and leafy arches. You can also see a hybrid collection of over 200 flowers (fun fact: the flowers are named after famous visitors!). So it’s the only place where you can marvel at the beauty of a Jackie Chan or Nelson Mandela orchid!
Gardens by the Bay
Another favorite green space among locals and tourists is Gardens by the Bay. Aside from the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and Supertree Grove, Gardens by the Bay has a waterfall that scatters droplets all throughout the tropical plantation.
