As you know, here at Nancy On The Home Front, I love to share with you all kinds of tips, tricks, ideas and insight into how you can live a cleaner and healthier life. As a 30 year plus gardener, I have a lot of experience in not just how to tend to a garden, but also in knowing how good it is for your wellbeing. I have teamed up with the good people at What Shed to share with you these interesting facts about why gardening is so good for you.
As you look at the information, you will see right away that gardening is not just a fun hobby that is going to result in you having some of your own homegrown food to have fun with. It is going to get you up and moving, making you active is the first step to having a more healthy and productive life and the stats back this up as people who garden tend to have 27 percent lower chance of having a heart attack! It is not just physical benefits either. Gardening is also proven to be great for your mental wellbeing as well.
Gardening works as a wonderful way to release stress and make you happy and let’s face it we should all be doing more of what makes us happy. Also, those who regularly tend to their garden tend to stay sharper and give their brain more chance in fighting off the effects of aging!
So next time someone comes to your house and sees you covered in mud, walking with a handful of carrots and a big smile on your face. Let them know how important gardening is for you and how it makes you feel like a million bucks. Plus let’s not forget the fantastic satisfaction of making a dish with food you have grown with your own two hand.
