The Benefits of Gardening

The Benefits of Gardening

Creating a garden can be a great stress reliever and a way to improve your mental and physical health. A variety of studies have found that time spent in a garden has a number of benefits.

Gardening can boost your confidence and increase your self-esteem. It can also help you overcome depression. One study found that people who spend time gardening are less likely to suffer from anxiety and depression.

Spending time outdoors can help lower high blood pressure, improve digestion and fight obesity. The sun can also improve your vitamin D levels.

While raking the lawn may seem like a chore, it’s actually a mild form of exercise. This activity burns between 250 and 350 calories an hour.

Other research has shown that time spent in a garden improves one’s sense of accomplishment. You can also build social connections while working in a garden. Many gardeners enjoy getting together with family and friends to discuss their projects.

If you’re looking for a fun and rewarding hobby, try a new plant. A Japanese study found that plants in the home can have similar benefits to those in the garden.

There’s a reason that the NHS considers exercise to be a necessary part of healthy living. Exercise helps reduce your risk of diseases and stroke.

The best part of spending time in a garden is the sense of accomplishment you get. When you’re weeding a garden, you’re not just improving your physical well-being, you’re also promoting healthy habits such as eating more vegetables.
