If you've never done it, and/or have been thinking about it, this is the year to start your own garden. We all have a little bit more time than usual and a little "dirt therapy" will do us all good!
We all know that gardens are the source of beautiful flowers and fresh fruits and vegetables, but the power of working the earth will also help soothe your soul.
Gardening is a huge stress reliever—and let's face it, we could all use some of that!
It's a fact that pulling weeds and planting seeds helps to calm anxiety, and getting your hands dirty gives you contact with soil based probiotics which naturally boost your immune system. So go ahead and get dirty. You'll be happier at the end of the day—we promise!
Gardening helps you connect with nature.
Sound a little hippy dippy for you? That's okay. Just get yourself outside and soak up some natural Vitamin D—something so many of us are deficient in—but be sure to protect yourself with sunscreen before heading out! Your body (and mind) will thank you for time away from computer and mobile device screens.
Gardening is a physical activity that will help you burn calories.
And since so many of us have been cooking like crazy, we could all stand to burn a few more calories. Gardening also instills in us a sense of accomplishment and purpose—feelings we can all use a bit more of these days.
Gardens produce fresh produce.
This, of course, means fewer trips to the grocery store. You will know exactly where your food comes from and you need not worry about where your produce is coming from or who's been handling it.
