Gardening not only benefits you by bringing delicious fresh fruits and vegetables to your table, but also is good for your body, mind, and soul. Your well-being is important. Why not see what a bit of gardening can do to help you stay calm, happy, and healthy? Here are just some of the benefits gardening can give you:
🌻 It is great for heart health! All the digging, planting, and weed pulling not only burns calories, but strengthens your cardiovascular system!
🌻 It can help reduce depression, anxiety, and stress. In a world full of unknowns, stress is a major factor and is known to cause many diseases and illnesses. It is important to find something that brings you joy, as well as something that keeps your mind occupied.
🌻 It’s something the whole family can do, and that means spending time together! You can talk, laugh, and share while you create a beautiful garden that will provide for you all!
🌻 The sun! Being out in the sun not only lifts your spirits, but gives you that much needed vitamin D that helps strengthen your bones! However, don’t forget to put on your sunscreen!
🌻 It teaches patience. We started our first garden last year and it didn’t go as planned. Instead of getting aggravated, we learned from those mistakes!
The list of benefits are endless. Not only are you creating food for your families, you are creating a healthier mind, body, and soul!
