Benefits of Gardening at Home
We love gardening, and we want you to love it, too. There are so many benefits of home gardening that there’s hardly an argument against it!
Physical Health Benefits
A solid hour of gardening might count as your daily exercise. Gardening requires bending and standing (squats), lifting bags of dirt (weightlifting), and plenty of walking (cardio). It sounds like a day at the gym, right?
Your body will also get a dose of Vitamin D, which your body requires to keep your bones healthy and your immune system functioning. Just remember to wear sunscreen for extended gardening sessions!
If you’re growing an edible garden with fruits, vegetables, and herbs, you’ll reap even more health benefits once you get to eat what you harvest. The food you grow will be rich in vitamins and minerals, and since you won’t want your hard work to go to waste, you’ll probably eat more veggies than you normally would!
Mental Health Benefits
Gardening and mental health go hand-in-hand. When you’re dealing with stressful situations, your body produces cortisol which is responsible for making you feel stressed or anxious. Gardening is known to reduce cortisol levels to help you calm down. Even sitting near houseplants can help!
The stress-relieving effects of gardening can create a positive atmosphere where you’ll want to spend all your time. Invite your friends and family over to help with garden chores so you can reap the social benefits of gardening, too.
Once you start harvesting from the plants you grew, you’ll find it’s a fulfilling and fun hobby that will boost your self-esteem. As you hold a bowl full of freshly picked tomatoes and peppers and cut them up for your next meal, you’ll feel motivated to keep growing, so you can always feel this way!
