Garden Gala and a Boon for the Brain!

Tish Benjamin

 

There’s just something peaceful yet invigorating about the smell, look, and touch of a garden.  Especially one that you’re cultivating!

Experts agree.  According to folks at Rodale.com, experts say that working in the garden, even two or three times a week, can reap a harvest of benefits as it:


  1. Reduces Stress

  2. Improves Mood

  3. Provides Exercise

  4. Promotes Relaxation

  5. Promotes Better Sleep


Not to mention improved nutrition from the fresh food.  A nicer looking yard with all the flora and fauna. Better communication with the neighbors (have to share all those zucchini!).


Hmmm...maybe we’d all better head outdoors to play in the dirt...
