Taking care of your mental health is something that far too many of us put off.
But gardening is one way that you can do this. Take some time a few times a week to potter around in the garden. Grow some plants. Grow some food that you can cook with and you will find that you feel a million times better as a result.
This is because it has been scientifically proven that gardening can greatly reduce stress levels and make a person happier. It also keeps your brain ticking ensures your cognitive skills stay sharp. In general, people who spend time in the garden are much happier than those who do not.
As well as being good for your mind and soul, gardening has also been proven to be great for your body. Gardening is not just a lot of fun it is also something that can provide you with a lot of exercise. It has been reported that a person can burn off the same amount of calories while gardening for a few hours as they would in the gym!
Gardening also serves as a way to make you eat more healthy.
You will be far more likely to stick to eating your fruit and vegetables if you are the one who has grown them. Plus you can share the food you grow with your friends or even sell it at the local market.
So have a look at our gardening infographic so you can see some of the major benefits it can have on your life.
