Whether it’s time spent with your family or getting down and dirty digging the borders, being out in the open air and keeping your mind occupied is a great reliever of stress.
With the sun shining too, being outdoors will keep you topped up with vitamin D and get your endorphins flowing, bringing out that much needed feeling of positivity.
As you expect, there are many physical benefits of gardening too! It is recommended that we all get 30 minutes of physical exercise a day, so bring your gym to your garden and let’s get going.
With just 30 minutes of weeding, you can burn 105 calories. Mowing the lawn can burn 250 calories per hour. Turning compost is a great alternative to lifting weights, and trimming hedges can help tone your biceps!
Dedicate an hour a day to your garden, and you’ll certainly see the reward!
