With beautiful weather in season, we think convincing people to spend more time outdoors, getting a little gardening work done won’t be hard right? Well not exactly. But what most don’t know or might not think about is how good it is for the body
and mind to spend some time outside in the sun. According to an article written on
Yahoo, there was a study that found that a person that spent 30 minutes gardening had lower stress levels than that of a person who spent 30 minutes indoors. Gardening can even help put you in a more positive frame of mind.
If this doesn’t motivate you enough to step outside & smell the roses, maybe a couple of the following reasons can help:
It helps you stay fit. Pulling weeds, digging, and trimming burns calories.
There is no minimum space limit. You can garden in almost any space. Big gardens, small gardens, pots etc.
Your life won’t stop. Luckily gardening does not request as much time from you as people may think. Gardens, for the most part, are pretty low maintenance.
May improve the value of your home. There is nothing better than catching a buyer’s attention with great curb appeal. A buyer will walk into your home, already partially in love with the place.
Now I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t think of a better stress reliever than this.
