When it comes to self-care, gardening might not be the first thing you think of, unless you’re already an avid gardener, in which case you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. But, it is fair to say that gardening can be one of the best ways to boost your wellness that there is.
Think about it, gardening takes you outdoors and enables you to spend some peaceful time amongst beautiful, fragrant plants and flowers. It will also give you at least a light workout if you are doing it right, and we all know how good exercise is for our body and mind health right?
Gardening can also give you a great sense of accomplishment. When you’ve planted something from seed and nurtured it to fruition, and maybe even incorporated it into a healthy meal for the whole family to enjoy, there is no feeling quite like it. It’s a real self-esteem booster, and lord knows we all need a boost to our self-esteem from time to time don’t we? That’s why you should think about adding gardening to your self-care routine.
But it’s not just that, gardening has so many health benefits that we could sit here talking about them all day. We aren’t going to do that, we don’t need to because this infographic goes into detail about every single health and wellness benefit of gardening, all of which have been proven by extensive research. If you don’t want to take up gardening after reading this, then you aren’t serious bout self-care!
