Why Gardening Is A Great Workout
It’s National Gardening Exercise day, which means it’s time to stop and smell the roses. According to the Centers for Disease Control, gardening (weeding, digging, planting) can also be compared to moderate cardiovascular exercise. And that’s not it! Here are four more reasons why gardening is a great exercise for your mind, body, and soul.
1. It gets you moving. Exercising doesn’t always mean you have to run a mile. Gardening forces you to get outdoors, which will do wonders for your body. Stretching, pushing, pulling, lifting — it incorporates many moderate fitness routine moves.
2. It sparks creativity. By breathing in the fresh air and soaking in some Vitamin C, it’s easier to connect with your body, mind, and spirit, which allows space for creative thoughts to flow. You’re also able to disconnect from technology, which is another plus!
3. It reduces stress. Gardening is the perfect time to relax and escape from the pressures of life. Immersing yourself in nature is a natural relaxer and the physical act of gardening helps lower blood pressure.
4. It boosts feel-good hormones. Gardening releases endorphins which makes us feel better long after gardening is done!
